Don't know if anyone would be interested in see a scan of a photo of a transfer roll and other stuff.

Quality of this photo is rather ratty, but there it is.

Any idea how the press functions? Paper feed, ink application, perforation?

Moyock.
see Siderography
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siderography

The engraver does the master on a plate (In reverse)
The transfer roller transfers the image onto the soft steel of the transfer roller.
This is then hardened and used as the master die for the plates.
Hope this makes sense.

Ergo, all printed stamps are facsimiles of the original engraved die.

For intaglio (recess engraved) printing: Original single die (reversed sunk) impression from which die proof impression can be taken (unreversed raised). Die impression (reversed sunk) transferred on to transfer roller (unreversed raised) impression in order to transfer it to the printing plate as many times as needed (reversed sunk) impression. Transfer roller (unreversed raised) impression transferred to printing plate (reversed sunk) impression on printing plate as many times as needed from which printing plate proof impression and printing of plate can occur (unreversed raised).

This was an awesome lesson. Thank you, all.

One more question. Was the stamp material hand fed or was it somewhat automated?
