I believe that the lGutenberg printing press began using laser printing around the 1700s and the Sharpie marker was invented around the early 1800s.  The label looks legit!

Yeah, but the folks on that timeline bombed themselves back to savagery during the Crimean War.  How'd it get here, and is it radioactive?  :ph34r:

Okay pardon, but what is TYPE crachelle varnish, built special, but not true crachelle? aack! At least, with the Gutenberg press you can get a nice heavy impression with the added bonus of a clean clear modern font!

Creative writing would be a polite way of describing it.

It looks like it got relisted though 

Yup, with a 750 quid starting bid this time, instead of 5, but  the same disclaimers attached.   I wonder what happened?

Someone saw this thread and made a fake bid? I think some people do this as a kind of vigilante action.

And others make bids when they are drunk and just forget.

Or the seller made the high bid hoping some sucker would bid higher?

Damn, I am annoyed that I didn't take a screen shot of this instrument now.

I think the seller has put up a similar or the same instrument up for sale, but now with a Hart and Sons label.
