Letterpress Wood Type 10 Line Antique Condensed 130 Pcs. Hamilton Mfg. Uc & #:
This sale is for a complete font of 10 line (1-2/3 inch tall) Antique Condensed vintage wood type for letterpress printing, upper case, numbers & punctuation. Capital "A" letters have Hamilton Two Rivers, Wis. stamped on them. This is a Condensed Serif face. Font consists of a complete alphabet, complete set of figures and punctuation, ampersand, dollar signs. 130 total wooden type pieces included. Please see 5 pictures above for details and specific character counts. I tried to count the total correctly.These look like a western, or Wild West face, like you might see on a wanted poster, with big, heavy serifs.
This type is beautiful, with dark wood colors, and a great wabi-sabi patina from use. Some have very little or no ink, and great wood grain & tones. My father worked in a print shop in the 1960's and saved boxes of type when they switched to offset printing. It's at least 50 years old, and may be much older.
Please contact me with questions or for more details.
I will ship in a medium flat rate box, and I'm listing several fonts of wood type. I'm happy to combine shipping if you get more than one. Please contact me before paying so I can invoice all together.
