You know what they say about ASS-U-ME ....

"testparm -v" will show you the current settings (whether explicitly set 
or default)

man smb.conf (3.5.)  shows a possible samba printer share as :

                 path = /usr/spool/public
                 read only = yes
                 printable = yes
                 guest ok = yes
