I’ve got two for sale that are priced at $4000.00. I also know where there’s a Cincinnati Typefoundry Washington that can be had for the hauling.
Unfortunately, there’s not much market for iron hand presses.

I can’t offer much additional value suggestion, but I would like to record the press in the North American Hand Press Database, which I keep. It records hand presses of all kinds and vintages located anywhere in North America, presently well over 1200 presses. I do have some records of asking prices in the recent past, if that would help. I would appreciate additional info about your press and its location, which will not be released without your permission. You can contact me through Briar Press.

Hello Mr Oldham - I sent you an email as I am not sure how to reply any other way in Briar press. We have three iron presses and would be glad to be part of a census.
