    Picked this today at a garage sale, Not sure what it is, maybe you guys can help. Its small, (2.5") what looks to be a copper over lead stamp. Would this have been used in printing press type operation?

    Ink it up and print it out on a piece of paper.
     
  3. Yes, that is an old printing plate, probably for a newspaper.

  4. May have been used in a letterpress for an advertising sheet.
    Looks like a toy.
