Straight from a retired Philadelphia printing office, these blocks are genuine vintage brass printing blocks. This was likely a daily use stamp for incoming paperwork, as I have lots of the RECEIVED that are dirty and crusty with old dry ink. I've cleaned and shined it up for you.

As you can see, the letters are cast backwards so they print correctly when reversed. Since these are vintage stock, each varies a little bit.

I have several "RECEIVED" blocks, and others available also. If you are interested in something other than "RECEIVED" send me a message to see what I have. Some say Philadelphia, some have office names, and some are blank, which could be sold as is or etched with any image drawn onto them (like my lockets or circle pendants).

These blocks are solid brass and weighty. They are hung from two 9" antiqued brass chains secured with lobster clasps and split rings.

I have cleaned up the blocks for you so you don't get ink all over your chest or shirts. You're welcome!
