This is actual linotype NO INGOTS. When casters melt linotype into ingots, you (the customer) have absolutely no easy way of telling what is in it. By keeping it in its antique form until it is in your possession you know exactly what you are getting. IT IS AN ALLOY AND DOES CONTAIN TIN AND ANTIMONY; IT IS TYPICALLY USED AS A "HARDENER" TO RAISE THE BHN OF YOUR ALLOY.
