  • Further Information
The mold was displayed for many years in an exhibit of the Institute's printing presses and tools.
Purchased from the American Type Founders Co., Jersey City, New Jersey, prior to January 24, 1934.

Records are unclear about the authenticity of the claim that the mold was owned/used by Franklin, although he did buy a type foundry while in Passy, and type was cast there. Terms of Use Credits
