    SCORE! Lino!

    Went to an OGCA show on saturday. Scored 52 pounds of linotype! That's the first I've seen at a show in years. Had 5 other people try to buy it while the guy was weighing it for me. $1.50/# One of the guys tried to buy it from me for more than I paid. No sale! Best show I've been to for a long time. Also, a SxS .410 also followed me home!

    Great score! About 18 years ago I found a similar score. There were 7 pigs of virgin lino at $10. ea. My hand couldn't get the money out fast enough.
    With inflation, your deal is probably even better, and lino is now much harder to find.

    There was a guy that came to the Medina shows years ago and I bought all the Lino he would bring. Don't remember the price but you got a good deal there.

    My last good score on lino was a local guy selling 100# at $1 per #. I bought it all, in type form of course.

    I am lucky, still an old print shop in my small town. I can buy all I want at $1.50 a pound, plus they give me some for hauling away their newsprint for recycling. I have about 200# stashed away. hc18flyer

    Thats a good score. I bought 200# as part of another deal early this year. I think I paid more than you did. Its getting harder to find.

    I think I'm down to around 350-400 pounds.....

    I'm hoping the guy brings more to the next show. I help another vendor so I can get at it before the crowd sees it!
