My conclusion is, that this is bad spelling but good engineering. They had letters with a certain size and there was not enough room for the correct word. So they used the wrong spelling.

It is possible, that both version were allowed at that time.
That are the results when bavarians have to write in german!
Could also bee an bad translation from Wagrecht (bavarian spoken: woagrecht) to German Waagerecht.

Dont forget: 70 Million Germans can not speak Bavarian!
