QuoteWe are about to acquire a Linotype machine that bears a Maker's Plate with the follwing information:"Manufactured at Altringham, Cheshire, England by Linotype & Machinery Ltd., London. LINOTYPE. Model 78 No 18839".Do any of your members have an idea of the production date for this particular machine?Also, another Makers Plate was discovered ( not attached to any machine ) which says "Model 4 No. MCXXPR".Can anyone shed any light on this?Were older Linotype Models "upgraded" with more modern parts additions and then re-issued with a newer Model No.??
QuoteOur newest 78 was Serial No. 18621, Shipped on the 2nd March 1968.
