This is the only known example of the Pearl No. 2. Unlike its siblings the No. 1 and No. 3 which are commonly found on bases with flywheels and treadles, the No. 2 began and ended its production run only as a tabletop. Notice the very unusual placement of the feed board. The exact date of this press is unknown but it is believed to have been manufactured in 1875 or 1876.
