Hot foil printing block.
I got this block, which is intended for stamping metallic foil onto paper, at the closing out auction of a small school-supplies printer in a small town near where I live. If you look on eBay these days (2007) you'll see hundreds of items like this for sale: Small printers are going out of business left and right. I think most of them are already gone, it's only a few stragglers in small towns and rural areas that have lasted this long. They are being replaced by more efficient, larger operations that were able to keep up with technology. The one I got this item from looked like it had not updated its printing process since the 1950's.
