More than 400 block letters in lead, antimony, tin (400)
Germany - 1880-1919 - Antimony, Tin, Lead and Copper

More than 400 lead printing letters, numbers and miscellaneous by a German printing press.

A very unique collection of printing letters and plates.
The printing stamps/plates are nailed on lead/tin blocks and 100 loose printing stamps/plates.

Hundreds of lead/tin letters in various styles, sizes and models. For more info, have a look at the pictures, as they say more than a thousand words.

There are some very particular copies among the printing stamps/plates. The collector will definitely recognise them.
The printing stamps/plates were often only used once after which they were remelted, where on the other hand, the letters were used multiple times, which makes this collection very rare. Highly desired in an industrial.

The photos are part of the description.
