These types were cast on an ATF Barth foundry caster with new primary metals with a high content of antimony, not remelted old type. Antimony is the metal that determines the hardness of the alloy, and thus the hardness of the types. These are the hardest printing types you can buy. They are more than hard enough for hot-stamping. True foundry alloy coupled with immense casting pressure creates density, which makes very hard types! Density comes from the Barth's ten-twenty times the casting pressure of Monotype cast types. Used well, they will last you a lifetime.
Put a font to the test. You won't need makeready. These types are .918 high, and stay that way for a long, long time. You can set and distribute, again & again and still need no makeready. Of course, someday you will, but you can delay this further by rotating the types, especially if you have more than one font in use.

I take much care in fonting and packing to make sure you receive your type in the condition it left my shop. Will combine metal type auctions to save on shipping, but the most you pay for one or five, is $11.95.

This font ships in a Small Global Priority Flat-rate box; $13.95 -Canada / $17.95 -Worldwide
A Medium Global Priority Flat-rate box (max. weight - 20 pounds) costs $33.55 to Canada, all other countries @ $48.55. This means you can ship up to five fonts at this cost. Overpayments are always refunded. If I get busy & forget, just ask!
As of Dec., '07, I have to start charging $1.00 packing fee as I have run out of recycled bubble-wrap & peanuts, and good tape is not cheap. Thanks for your understanding.
INFO: All Dale Guild types are cast on ATF Barth casting machines, which produce true foundry types, not monotypes. See my "me" page for further info.
I also sell old and new types, presses, books related to printing and other letterpress things from my own letterpress shop . In addition, I sell some very nice items for a few good retired friends that are better acquainted with movable type than computers. Please check my EBAY STORE for more fonts, early printed leaves and antiquarian books.
Better yet, save my list http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/acw (click on "Save this search), and ebay will email you everytime I list items. Very often, I have only one, or a few of types or fonts, and they sell the day I list. I welcome your questions. Thanks for looking. I really do appreciate it!
