I believe #2745 was made in 1902

It’s an 8 X 12 Old Series. Very popular press in its day, and still very popular today. The Briar Press Museum, at this site, can give you a lot of details about it. I think it weighs about 800 pounds. Great little press — I’ve had one since 1975, and I’ve sold three or four just like it.
