Printing block, likely in copper, commemorating Gypsy Smith's 60th jubilee as a preacher. The block is engraved with a tune and the words:

60 years of service for my King
60 years for him to preach and sing
If he should grant me 60 more
I'd give them to the Christ whom I adore.

The printing block is part of a small archive of objects in connection with Gypsy Smith in the museum's collection. See also a selection of other objects from the Gypsy Smith archive in the Online Collection.
