Rare 9x13 New Champion Press circa 1888

This is an uncommon press from upstate New York which we gave much TLC to, rebuilding the feed board and brackets from wood. The flywheel is particularly beautiful. According to press collector John Horn, it is likely an Olmesdahl/New Champion press made in New York around 1888. Has new rollers and trucks. The press could still use some restoring, as it had been painted grey by a former owner. There is no throw-off. Extra chases available. Press is in Manhattan. Metal type also available.
