27 Metal Symbols from an old letterpress type set that was never used. Very small and dear, 10 asterisks; 5 fancy, section double S symbols; 5 "at" @ signs (sometimes called the monkey's tail); and 7 double dagger symbols. These metal blocks were made in the 1940s by the Baltimore Type Company. Great for typeset collections, supplies, repurpose, art projects.

27 pieces in this set, and all for one price. All blocks are 15/16" long (almost an inch).

5 Fancy, Section Symbols (sometimes called the double "S"). The symbol on the end of the block is 1/8" long, 1/16" wide.
5 AT symbols, the @. Symbols are on a squared metal block, and the symbol is 3/32" long and wide.
7 Double Dagger Symbols, and this symbol is almost 1/8" long, 1/16" wide.
10 asterisks, six-sided. The symbol is well defined for its size! This asterisk is the size of a pencil point.
ALL symbols are raised on the end of their metal block. Interesting pieces.

I have more type set pieces of other symbols if you are interested. Just contact me.

Take a look at my other letterpress type listings. All are different.

Place an asterisk next to it, and mark the fancy section.
