Lots of Letters!! This wooden letterpress type isin good used condition.
We didn't see any markings on the type but per RRK book; it is same style by Webber & Wells 1840.
The set hasnormal dings & wear associated with age--the K has a crack in it and some of the letters
have small cracks on the base but it doesn't impact how it prints.
We did a quick proof and the type prints well.
It needsa really good cleaning. See photos for letter counts and proofs.
We stand behind our type and want you to be happy with it.
Let us know if you have questions prior to offerding.
