Reclaiming the type font from the dirt, much like archeologists!

Along with the press we found an old box with drawers and parts that had fallen through the rotten wood.  We cleaned them and we are now starting to sort them.  Looks like we have a good supply of both upper case and lower case 10pt font that we have yet to identify.  There is also smaller font that will be a bear to sort!    Also found a lot of "cast furniture." that is used to lockup the type as well as four chases
