mint condition showcard proof press

SOLD, thanks everyone for your interest! I have a complete set (upper and lowercase) of woodtype up for bid on ebay if anyone is interested.

This showcard proof press is in like new condition and has probably been used twice, it still had the original machine grease on it when I got it. It has a large 14x24 bed so it’s great for large wood type and making posters. I don’t know what brand it is and it has no markings, but the shipping label on the box says it came from the American Wood Type Company. It is rather heavy and shipping it would cost a lot, so I would recommend picking it up. I live a few miles from the Museum of Printing in North Andover, MA so you could make a trip out of it, but I will get a shipping quote for interested parties. Feel free to email me with any questions. I also have some wood type and all the printing accessories and supplies for anyone just starting out for an additional cost. I’m asking $400 for the press. Thanks,
