Vintage printers type case and 2,887 pieces of type.   The type appears to be 10 point but I don’t know the font. The printers case has 54 compartments.

I bought this at a live auction for $20 (Sept 2017), listed it on eBay in Feb. 2018, Sold for $104.00 April 2018 ($35 was shipping), that’s over 300% profit.  Do you make that kind of margin on your investments?  This is part of what keeps me picking.    These print trays are often used to display nick-knacks.  Sometimes the print type is used for fishing lures, and with the U.S. stopping the production of lead, some bullet makers will use the lead for that purpose.  When I was a teen in high school, I worked part-time at a print shop, and actually used some of these print trays.  It gives a whole new appreciation for the word processors and printers we have today.   I was very fortunate to find a buyer, that wanted it for it’s original intended purpose.
