By the way, that 72pt hand mould looks like a modern re-creation rather than an antique.
Our museum would also like to order a set of hand moulds for casting short runs. We have over 200 thousands of the traditional typefounders' mats (a legacy of the Warsaw Type Foundry), but no operational machines that can accept them.
