The font boxes that Pat. Anderson referred to, called California job
cases, now sell for about $
100+ apiece in antique shops. Like cigar
molds, they get used for restaurant decor...

Our shop (we learned to hand set type in a mandatory class called
"industrial arts") teacher in high school had a neat remedy for
cut-ups: they got to sort all that mixed-up type after class...
