21-drawer Hamilton metal type cabinet with lots of tiny type

This classic Hamilton Metal Type Cabinet holds up to 22 drawers. It includes 7 drawers of various tiny(!) types:

8 pt Light Litho
8 pt Cheltenham Bold Condensed
8 pt Century
8 pt Century Bold
6 pt Alternate Gothic
6 pt Copperplate Gothic Italic
and one drawer of two unidentified types

The drawers are in good condition. As the photos show, there is some rust on the bottom of the cabinet, but it stands upright and is completely functional. With a little welding work, it could be fully restored.

Also included is an assortment of other tiny typefaces, not in drawers. These include:

6 pt Invitation
6 pt Copperplate Gothic
6 pt Light Bank Gothic
8 pt Wedding Text
6 pt spacing material
5 pt Century Expanded Italic
6 pt Broadway
8 pt Bernhard Gothic Light
6 pt Light Copperplate Gothic
8 pt Engravers Roman
6 pt Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed
8 pt Garamond
6 pt Eurostile Light
and several other smaller sorts

I would love to see this great type cabinet and tiny typefaces go to a working print shop or reused in new Monotype castings. I am willing to separate the items but would prefer that it go all together.

Asking $450 OBO.

Local delivery in the Washington DC and Northern Virginia region for $2/mile.
