Condition Report For Lot# 41 :
The press is in overall good condition except for some rust on once bare surfaces and some loss of the black enamel. A new roller for spreading ink will be needed if the press is to be restored to working order. It will also need to be mounted to a table or sturdy wood base. The press comes with several dozens of pieces of type, brass & lead shims, and what may be the original tweezers. The wooden box is homemade, but designed to hold the press. Dimensions provided are for the wood case. Sold "as is".
