anyone know about newspaper plates? when the newspaper moved from downtown to its present location they went from letterpress to litho, these were pulled off the press on the last day 1972? before they went to litho at the new plant. would make a cool end table or turn it into a lot of projectiles for reloading. Are they worth anything besides lead. jim 20210222_181034.jpg

There are loons out there who collect anything. (Sez the guy who collects staplers, padlocks, and a bunch of other crap. 🙄 🤣)

OTOH, those are pretty cool and a part of history. Possibly the local historical society would be interested?

My post on a newspaper plate site about my 66 Chevelle was not appreciated... Strange.

when I worked at the paper, they were cleaning out the vault, there was papers from the early 1900s. I called the historical society to see if they were interested and basically they were interested, but they wanted the paper to store the stuff until someone could eventually get around to look at the stuff. It ended up going to the recycle yard. jim

Hoarders is a cool show. sometimes the residents bury themselves in clutter until they are either evicted or foreclosed out of their property. A memorable episode was a woman "Sharon" in North Carolina, who hoarded full a 15,000 square foot mansion she had squatted in for years. Instead of trying and acquiring the home legally, she filled it with stuff. Sixty plus 30 yard roll off dumpsters were needed to clear the house.
Personally am trying to clear a yard full of parts that have turned out to be unsellable - due to shipping logistics and simply being post '74 stuff. 75-79 Nova, 78-83 Malibu, 85-94 Subaru.

That's too bad. I'd hate for those to be melted down.

You've been here 13+ years and you were unaware that in Bench Racing, basically anything goes?

Try to keep up, eh? 🙄
