      Woodtype being thrown in the trash reminds me of a similar incident: I
      responded to an ad once where the seller was trying to get rid of a load
      of Armenian type. I couldn't get to him immediately, so a week went by.
      When I finally got to the guy, he told me he had sold the type to
      another party who had already cast the type into lead soldiers.
