Anything rearranged or changed is not eligible for return. There are roughly 743 numbers/letters/characters in this set (in photos, please see letter chart for reference). There are roughly 27 extra quads in this set to square it.
Many of these look completely unused or barely used. We have identified this as ATF Typeface Stymie Black (based off the typeface ID# on the uppercase H of 598). They may not both be from this set but they were in the same case so we are putting them all in this set. 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!Stymie was designed by Morris Fuller Benton at ATF in the early 30s, various Extrabold and Condensed styles were added in mid-late 30s, and Bold Condensed was added in 1937. 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.
