"Still by far the best seller I've encountered on eBay"
feedback from "singletonpb"

A couple of years ago, I sold over 1500 sheets of LetraSet to eager buyers and am now disposing of several boxes of miscellaneous products from the same company.

This latest selection is of a very desirable collection of the-more-difficult-to-find white display type: 192pt (that’s 2“ [50mm] Cap height) of the beautiful sans serif, extra-narrow face, Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed – a still-popular and widely-used face today.  Very useful for dramatic effect while maintaining excellent legibility.

Sheet size is 15” x 10” (384mm x 253mm).  Half of them are completely unused and with between 4 and 6 sheets of each, you’ll have a big selection of every character.  But no numerals were produced for this size.  Because of their size, you will need patience and a good burnishing tool to transfer them successfully to your working surface.
I always found white ink released more quickly than black from its carrier sheet and when you could see it change colour during the pre-release process, it was always advisable to rub down such a large character with your finger first before final burnishing with a proper tool.  (A free tip there, for you!  :-)   )

Against each sheet number below, I have provided an honest guide to the estimated percentage of images remaining.

The 20 sheets will be provided in one of the original LetraSet cardboard hinged-lid boxes and are sold on an “as is” basis.  I regret that no returns will be considered.

4 x Sheet No 324A – 192pt Franklin Gothic Ext Cond, Caps A-N – 35%, 50%, 85% & 90%
5 x Sheet No 324B – 192pt Franklin Gothic Ext Cond, Caps O-Z – 50%, 60%, 80%, 98% & 100%
5 x Sheet No 325A – 192pt Franklin Gothic Ext Cond, l/c a-m – 98% & 4 @ 100%
6 x Sheet No 325B – 192pt Franklin Gothic Ext Cond, l/c m-z – 85% & 5 @ 100%

So a superb collection of very usable, large display and extra condensed lettering in hard-to-find white, in a classic sans serif style, each with a protective carrier-sheet to prevent accidental transfer.

Please note this item is being auctioned under two different categories but should end simultaneously.
