A. Olmesdahl Press / $1000

Working press. Maker’s plate says: A. Olmesdahl / New Champion / New York

$1000 for press and materials

My dad bought this from a printer in Birmingham, AL about 5 years ago and we never used it. The seller showed us how to use it and printed cards, so we know it works. It moves well, but I don’t have a ton of details about it other than that. I do believe they only made these specific presses from 1886 to 1888.

I would just like to see it to go to someone that will use it. Serious inquires only please.


Includes extra materials and tools shown in photos. There’s even more that isn’t pictured. Some metal type, two chases, ink, etc.

Must be able to move and pick up. It’s currently in our basement.

Cash only.
