Baltimore Hand Letterpress

I am selling from my collection an old Baltimore No. 11. I’ve used it as a bookend for years. However. looking it over I think it is a Dorman Baltomorean. Chase size is 21/2x4 inches. It uses two rollers and has all the ornamental castings of a Baltimore but no gold or other paint. I think it may have been spray painted black years ago. The press is complete and works just fine. I think it is circa 1895. Comments on how much it is worth?

more a collectors press then a users because of size. it is a real press with pressure adjustments. value 125.00 - 200.00
far as I have seen all the Baltomorean had a 3 part roller arm set up with a rod between them, not a single piece like Baltimore.
