Photo of the Week
January 4, 2009
Below is an image of the actual printer's block that I scanned. Forgive the orange color as it is actually a copper color. The copper plate is mounted on the wooden block with small copper nails.
You cannot believe how excited I am about this find!!!! What was this printer's block made for? Were there certificates that were printed and issued along with the medal? The only information I could get from the seller is that this block came from a large lot of printer's blocks that came from a collector. If anyone can help me out with how, why and where the printer block was made, please let me know. I really think I have something historical here and am so happy that I was able to obtain it in the efforts to preserve our United States Panama Canal heritage.
I have left these
images rather large so you can study them.
