14 Pt Waldorf Text - Only Set over 1200 pieces - Rare Typeface. Put all of the different items in your cart BEFORE paying, and then. RETURN NOTE ON TYPE SETS. You should be able to un-tape just the top cardboard so you can see the complete set without risking anything falling out or apart.
Anything rearranged or changed is not eligible for return. DESCRIPTION Only Set : There are roughly 1291 numbers/letters/characters in this set (in photos, please see letter chart for reference). There are roughly 14 extra quads in this set to square it. Many of these look completely unused or barely used. This case was very clean and most look to be in amazing shape.
PLEASE NOTE - SET SPECIFIC INFORMATION : We have encountered a few sets here and there that have missing letters or only have ONE of a specific letter or figure. This is one of those instances SO it is what it is. There are NO uppercase "H" and a couple only have one piece. This is a very rare set of type, it is almost complete but low on specific figures. We are having to go deep into some older books and getting help from some letterpress experts to find information on some of these harder to find sets.The top will be marked for easier opening. OPEN WITH CAUTION or you will have a pile of type on your floor. Please see photos for type condition, these were all used previously so there may be flaws, corrosion (type lice), ink or other imperfections. We MAY add a random number of spacers to make this set as square as possible.
Please be aware that working with this many letters we can make mistakes, but we are doing our best! All of the type in this listing comes from the printing press that was originally located at Redwood High School in Larkspur, California. We are unsure how many decades the high school had this press or the type, but we believe it dates back to the early 1900s. We are slowly separating out sets of type for sale. Please see photos for closer details and overall condition.
PLEASE ask questions - we are happy to provide additional information/photos upon request. Once an item is listed in our STORE, we will generally (but not always) entertain reasonable offers. Unless listed as new/unused, some or all of the items may be faulty or damaged.
We will list details as accurately as possible but things can be missed. All items are from a smoke free environment unless otherwise indicated.
If you are outside the United States. WHERE DID IT COME FROM? In early 2016, we began clearing out our father's 1500 square foot warehouse that has been used to store a seemingly infinite number of items since 1970. Most are aviation and nautical, general military surplus including clothing, patches, flight suits, flight helmets, and thousands of miscellaneous items.
The collection includes a very large number of naval block and tackle (wood frames with iron sheaves and hooks, painted battleship grey, with single, double and triple sheave sizes), some helicopter and airplane parts (mostly hydraulic actuators/servos, some clamps and small connectors), and other random items such as office supplies, medical devices, small boat props, glassware, dishware, and "DANGER MINES" signs from the early 1950s just to name a few. Most of the military surplus was made and manufactured in the 1950s and 1960s and much of it is still in the original packaging with dates and part numbers.
In fact, the warehouse was packed to the rafters with boxes when we started. We have worked extremely hard to whittle down the inventory to a manageable amount, so we are now, finally, able to slowly start putting some items up for sale.We will describe the condition and provenance of these items to the best of our ability and include multiple photos with every listing. Please see each photo for closer details and overall condition of each of our items.
