Can one find the coordinates (x,y,height,width) of a thumbnail taken out of the original image, programmatically?

So here in lies the rub: I'm pushing a redesign, and the thumbnails are now 100x100. I was dumb and did not log the thumbnail dimensions. I'd really really really like those numbers, not only to make the thumbnails bigger and look less blurry, because I know we'll also eventually be printing these out, and I'm going to want a sharper image to send to the printer.
The big question: Can I get, with some software, the x, y, h, and w of the thumbnail with some sort of fuzzy image comparison? Can image magick do this? My language of choice is python, so anything using that will be cake.
