It appears to be a Beraducci Brothers press, like the one I have. Some of it has been painted (that red that shows is not original and the blue on the base may not be). It is a good price. If the bar is missing, it is only about a 3 foot long iron bar, 3/4" diameter. Should be easy to find a replacement.
Never give up! Christopher Columbus never gave up. Benjamin Franklin never gave up. Oliver Twiddledee... (Who's he?!) You see, you don't know because he gave up!
