Liberty Press
of Sarah Verroken

In 2013, Sarah Verroken of Belgium rescued a Liberty press from the garbage. She hopes to clean it up and restore it to working order.

This Liberty press shows the 1874 patent extension. Since the manufacturer's name is shown as "F. M. Weiler", it was built after Weiler bought out the business from the Degener family in 1877.
