Letter Opener & Magnifier Machine Age Desk Accessory

I am offering a vintage machine age letter opener with pull-out magnifier with appealing Machine Age styling. Marked "Autopoint Chicago Made in USA," this letter opener has advertising for Industrial Sales & Engineering Co in Kalamazoo, MI. I'm not sure how old it is, but this desk accessory is old enough to have a five-digit phone number. The letter opener blade appears to be chrome, and the handle bakelite or some other kind of plastic. The pull-out plastic magnifier some tiny fleabites on the end. There are extensive surface scratches to the blade, and normal scratches to the handle. It's an interesting desk accessory--much more fun than just a plain old letter opener.
