Details on this Liberty show it is unlike most others:
This press only has the original patent date (April 24,
1860) so it was likely manufactured during the 1860s.
The Liberty press is located in the "Haus für Industriekultur," a department of the Hessisches LandesMuseum Darmstadt (Federal State Museum of Hesse). The "Haus" is at a different location (Kirschenallee) than the main museum (the Friedensplatz). They have lots of machines—7 handpresses (including Stanhope, Columbian, and Dingler), 6 cylinder presses—and really nice people.
