Manufacture date for C & P Newstyle.

I have a new style C & P, the serial number is B63578. Can anyone tell me the manufacture date or how to go about getting it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

According to the list on the APA website, your C&P New Style is an 8x12 manufactured circa 1945-1950.
Here is the URL for the serial number listing—although I can’t guarantee it will work, since there seems to have been a bit of a glitch with it just recently.
Hope this helps.

According to records avaiable 8x12 C&P Press with serial no. B63578 were manufactured between 1941-1945.

Hope this is the info you want.

I have a serial number list from the Chandler & Price that came to me from an old family of equipment dealers here in the NW. They used to sell new and service the C&P presses. The list shows that an 8 x 12 New Style had serial numbers B63457 - 1947 and
B63706 - 1948. I looked at the website referenced and the serial numbers do not correspond with this Chandler & Price List.
Good luck!

Steve - According to my list, which appears to be an official list from the Chandler & Price company - and includes 7 pages of serial numbers for various C&P equipment, your press - #63578 left the factory in 1947.

And, since the list ends with ‘discontinued’ in 1962 - at 64780, yours appears to be one of the last 1200 or so built. - a pretty ‘new’ New Style C&P…

1947 begins with B63457
1948 begins with B63706
1962 begins with B64780
next line says ‘discontinued’

My info concurs with Allart’s, so I guess we’re using the same list.

Alan: Would you be willing to post a scan of this list? The only lists I’ve seen are second hand ones printed by hobby printers, such as the one posted on greendolphin ( ) that was printed by J. Gordon Boggs for the AAPA and APA. I’d love to see one made by C&P.

Hi – I have a C&P Old Style and I’m looking for the same information… but I can’t get the link posted by rectorypress to work. Comes up 404 Not Found. Any advice? thanks
