have a huge cache of lead type.

i recently aquired about 25 full drawers of various seemingly well organized lead type of various different sizes and fonts. this came from our local histrical society and seems to be super high quality lead and is purpoted to be late 1800,s . i have no idea who might be interested in something like this. i want it to go to a good home where it can be used. i dont know the value but would be happy if someone would help me find a buyer. included are the keystone drawers. phil 440 309 4030 thanks

Anybody in the metro Cleveland area who might be able to help identify and preserve this collection? Could be some pretty interesting old faces. I wish I was nearby.


Phil, do you have the capability to photograph any of the type or the cases or cabinet? We may be able to help you sell them via the forum here.

Have you talked to anyone at Zygote Press? If not, call. They have a letterpress shop there and people who know about letterpress.
