This is the print band in its storage container.
This is it out of the container. The steel band was 5/1000" thick, the embossed characters made the thickness 15/1000"
This is a close-up of the print band.
As you can see it is a single piece of metal, unlike the print train 80 slugs, or print chain 241 components.
When a character on the print band became too worn the whole band had to be replaced,
whereas with the train or chain just one slug needed to be replaced.
