Foster Washington style hand press

Has anybody ever seen a C. Foster and Son Iron hand press like this? The large shell on top is different from the one in the International Printing Museum in La, or the one that used to be at the Bee Newspaper in Sacramento. I have seen three others, one in Havanna Cuba, but none with this shell. Any hints on another example would be greatly appreciated. I have had this for 40 years and it came from central Illinois via Florida.
