Beautiful patina on the wood. Made by the Hamilton company. This type is very handsome, with dark wood colors, and a great wabi-sabi patina from use.Some of these are un-inked, or very little ink, and have beautiful, colorful wood grain. My father worked in a print shop in the 1960's and saved boxes of type when they switched to offset printing.
It's at least 60 years old, and may be much older. Please note the last 2 photos are reflected to show that the typeface looks like when printed. Please contact me with questions or for more details.
