Letterpress Wood Type 8 Line Antique Bold 62 Pcs. Hamilton Mfg. Uc Only, Leading For Sale

Letterpress Wood Type 8 Line Antique Bold 62 Pcs. Hamilton Mfg. Uc Only, Leading

This sale is for a complete font of 8 line (1-1/3 inch tall) Antique Extra Bold vintage wood type for letterpress printing, upper case only. Capital "A" letters have Hamilton Two Rivers, Wis. stamped on them. This is a Serif face. Font consists of a complete alphabet, ampersand, two exclamation points. 62 total wooden type pieces included. Please see 8 pictures above for details and specific character counts. I tried to count the total correctly.
I am also including some 8 line leading, shown in the photos, and one "O" with a lead face, and a "Z" with a shrunken, deteriorating linoleum face.
This type is beautiful, with dark wood colors, and a great wabi-sabi patina from use.Some have lovely, colorful wood grain.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.
