I originally posted the following on the general forum but thought perhaps this one might be more appropriate:

I picked up a 'novelty' item in an antique shop today. It's a metal typeset of a 1961 Russian stamp that was used in the printing a newspaper philately column.

I've attached a photo (sorry for the quality). At top is the typeset metal template and the bottom shows an imprint that was included with the typeset piece. I am wondering if anyone on this forum can tell anything about this item.

The shop had a few more but I got the one. Of course, if someone here tells me they are valuable, I'll be returning to pick up some more.

As stated on your other thread, it is a printing block for a newspaper or catalogue complete with perforations. Genuine Proofs would not show the perforations,

Thanks again pagoda ... I take it these are truly just novelties and not considered philatetic items. And while I suppose people collect these items, do you know if they command much interest or value?

Hah! Except I was apparently interested enough to purchase it (but didn't spend much to be fair).

Interesting items, but not particularly valuable. I have a couple of them myself.

FYI...
These type of things can be found for many of the hobbies, here are a couple of wood/brass Studebaker logo printing blocks.

Scott/Amos Publishing tried to sell these stamp cliches which were once used to print their catalogs. Prices were a bit high, cliches were chosen randomly (you could not specify a country let alone a specific issue). Used as give aways when sales were not working out. Many came still with residual ink on them which was unpleasant to discover when receiving one of these as a gift at banquet.
