I don't have much information on this feeder yet. It is unusual in that it does not suspend the ingot above the pot on a chain, as most feeders do. It also appears to require notched ingots cast in a special mold. It is shown in Linotype Catalog No. 27, Special Supplies Catalog (1936), but not in Catalog No. 56 or in the Linotype parts books.
The Linotype Catalog No. 27 was copyright 1936, but a search of the copyright renewal records failed to discover a renewal as then required. It therefore passed into the public domain upon the expiration of its original copyright in 1964.
