This "fan-dangled" machine is a real cracker of a thing! The machine is 16 1/2" in length and 4 3/4" in width, with a height of approximately 4 1/2". The base appears to be cast iron and the curved cover and other pieces are all metal. There are original rubber stamps still on the print roller inside and the handle turns easily so all appears still in working order. There is some surface rust on the base iron part. The machine has all the original plaques etc and the most recent Patent Date showing on this machine is for August 1915. Made by the Todd Protectograph Co, Rochester, New York. A pretty heavy item but a great collectors piece.
