I found several dozen 2x2 bricks which come either from a original Lego set from
about ten to twenty years ago, or were part of a long forgotten Bricklink order
from the same period.

Point is I've never seen the type before. Injection point in between studs,
Logos on studs seem to be slightly out of center, inside has sloped side supports.

Anybody any idea?

I have already asked this question, but unfortunately I never received an answer.

From what I understand the catalogue only disciminates between variations with
functional differences unless there is a huge lobby group who cares about the
difference. Even though there is a collector community who collect the variations
of the 2x4 brick there are only a few of the many variations distinguished in
the catalogue and most are just listed as 3001old. If you want to list them you
could use 3003old and describe then in a comment or use your own photo on the
listing, though I'd be surprised if anyone is really searching for them.

The collector community added a few of the main variations to the BrickLink catalog,
but they stopped adding new versions when they realised how many brick types
can be found. It would be difficult to determine which versions to include and
which to leave out, and sorting those variations would create a lot of extra
work for sellers.

  If you want to list them you
could use 3003old and describe then in a comment or use your own photo on the

I might want a few, but I agree that not many people will be searching for them.
