ANS LETTERPRESS PRINTING BLOCKS FOR SALEGeorge Cuhaj is offering on eBay this week some interesting items relating to American Numismatic Society publications. They are letterpress half-tone (screened dot image) copper acid-etched plates depicting society medals and logos. George writes:
These items were disposed of officially by the ANS in a house-cleaning during the mid-1980s. They were probably used for illustrations in the American Journal of Numismatics when the medals were originally offered for sale, and re-used for the 1957 Centennial History edition. They make for very nice desk paperweights.
