Unfortunately there were wood type manufactures that did not identify their company on the Cap A as was the practice for most of the notable wood type manufactures that printers are familiar with Hamilton, Tubbs, Page, American Wood Type to name a few. This offering would make a very nice addition if you have been considering adding wood type to your shop inventory. This is a small enough size (one inch tall) plus being a condensed face you are not restricted from using this on smaller sized platen presses. Ou could easily accommodate use of this font with a table top press.Most wood type has a fair share of wear to the edges as well as dings in the type face that occur through the years or as some like to call it "patina". There are a few letters that have dings and or have wood removed from individual letters for tighter letter spacing. This is a somewhat common finding on older fonts of wood type. Please carefully view all photos included with this offering for acceptability to your needs. This font was photographed on a 12 x 18 steel galley for reference as to size of this font offering.
Metal Galley is not included in this offering. I've noticed after assembling all the photos and information pertaining to this font that there are two wrong font numbers in the mix, one figure 9 and one figure 0 are not same as font offered. They are a bolder w/thicker lines.
(close but not same font) I have removed those two figures from the figure count as well as the total pieces included count shown below, both figures will however be included however, should you choose to use them in a pinch.
