Seller's description:

Folio Extra Bold 66pt, Letterpress Foundry Type

Cast by Bauer Alphabets in West Germany and distributed in America at standard type height of .918"

Lowercase, numerals and punctuation only. Caps are missing.
There are five packages of type in all. Both images shown of the lowercase have 2 identical packs each. (and 1 pack of the numerals)

This is unused foundry type cast in the day when the metal used was of extremely high quality. Far superior to the metal used in contemporary monotype casting.

Becoming somewhat uncommon to find unused foundry type at this point.

Type weighs 28lbs. Priced at $2.50 a pound, considering caps are not present.

Will ship USPS in a Medium Flat Rate Box
