What to do with type and identification?

I bought a press that also came with a large amount of type.  Some of it is labeled and other not.  I'm starting to go through it now and am wondering a couple of things.1.  If I have a drawer of mixed size type and it's not really enough to do anything with, where do I get rid of it?2. I want to identify the type that isn't labeled.  Where is the best source to find out what it is?Thanks, SonjaSee More
