Price range will be between $200 -$500 depending on condition, how close an interested party is, and the location of the press. The basement location makes it difficult but not impossible. Good luck and thank you for trying to keep this piece of history in circulation.

Looks like a 12 x 18 C&P. If the basement is a walk out, that can help immensely, otherwise the prospective buyer will have to dismantle the press or spend a lot of money to rig it out intact. Disassembly instructions for a C&P can be found in various archives, or on the Green Dolphin Press website. (which also has gobs of other neat letterpress info).
