So far I haven't been able to find mirrored notehead examples either.
Maybe the old shape-note tunebook scans I'm checking aren't from the
right editions for finding them.

And I've read over the archived Google Code discussion. That was
before my time in the LilyPond community, I have very little
experience prior to 2016 or so. If we could find the image attachments
from the original postings, those were claimed to have examples of
these mirrored noteheads. But none of the attachment links seem to
work, and doesn't have them either. Maybe the link format
changed at some point, and would have them if I only knew
how to ask?
