Prior to the digital age, books, posters, tickets, forms, newspapers, and other types of printed paper were produced on a printing press. Movable type, wooden printing blocks, metal printing blocks & sequential numbering machines (also known as a letterpress cut or printing dies) were set in a frame (known as a chase) and ink was rolled over the surface of the metal image with a roller (also known as a brayer) before the paper was pressed into the inked surface. This process was known as relief printing which included woodcut, relief etching, linocut, linotype, and metal cut.

SELLER'S COMMENTS: This numbering machine was acquired as a part of "a lot" of numbering machines from a large United States print shop. It is assumed this numbering machine is functional; HOWEVER, it is being sold AS-IS, as a novelty item only - - - aswe can not assure that each and every digit will sequence, that there might not be some unseen or undetected damage, etc. Each numbering machine has undergone extensive usage. And about that 1942 Mercury Dime in the photographs - it's not included with the purchase - it's for a size reference only.
This unusual numbering machine makes a perfect gift for yourself, your coffee or end table, on your desk at work, on a shelf, or in your collection. It also makes an unusual gift (we bet no one else is going to give this as a gift!). Given the advent of digital printing, the likelihood finding these professional numbering machines gets slimmer each day. There is little doubt that when friends see it they'll ask "Where did you find this unusual item? Whatever does it do?"
NOTES ABOUT THE NUMBERING MACHINE'S SURFACE: This is a precision mechanical device. Every time a numbering machine passes through the press, the impact and the pressure of the die's impression on the paper ever-so-subtly degrades the surface of the numbers. This numbering machine is believe to have printed hundreds of thousands of sequential numbers - so its digit's surfaces may be slightly degraded. The numbering machine you receive will show signs of wear-and-tear, maybe scratches, some residual ink, etc.
IMAGE CORRECTION / ADJUSTMENT: None of the photographic images have been reversed or enhanced.
