Default Treasures from the boxes.

Here are a couple of pieces that showed up in boxes of tools from old engravers.
The copper plate is the printing plate for a wedding invitation from 1923. The lettering is perfect. Like Ginger Rogers, not only does it have to be done with style, grace, and precision, it also has to be done backwards.
The die is for the Winnipeg Speed-Skating Club, probably also in the 'twenties, and the club is still kicking.
