I recently became an owner of a C&P “new style” press & cutter, however this much smaller (press?) came with it too.

There isn’t a serial number or any marks on it. It looks pretty old to me, but I’m not even sure if it’s a press for type? Any answers or ideas would help. Thanks

  1. Katie,
    That’s entirely up to you! But I think I might know of some interested folks if you decided you wanted to sell it.

    Just out of curiosity, does it have any identifying marks across the back of the gear rack? (that’s the flat part with the teeth)


  2. Ha! I wondered where my comment went!

    Don’t go too crazy cleaning this one up. This press likely has more value to civil war collectors than it does in the printing trade and those folks tend to prefer original/unrestored patina.
