This is a James Bond meets Don Draper gadget. A pocket stapler made to look like a pen. These were produced in the late 50s to early 70s by the 'Duo Fast' company. They were often used as promotional items and were stamped with company names. This stapler, however, is not stamped at all.

The stapler is in working condition (I tried it). There are still staples in the cartridge. You load up the staples via the chamber in the black part of the pen.

Please note: the black part always comes off. The previous owner had it taped with Scotch tape to keep it from falling off. I checked it and it seems to be a factory defect. The black part should screw in securely but it doesn't because it is too loose. It is not broken, there are no cracks, but the black part does fall off. I have no solutions for tightening it, beeswax perhaps, but I haven't tried that since I do not wish to damage it.

Other than that, the stapler is in good, vintage, working condition (see photo where I stapled near the page number). The staples aren't rusty. The staple wires used are small. They aren't standard-sized, but this kit does come with a little silver box of 1000 staple wires. It looks intact (I opened to check).

The date 'Aug 31 1963' is stamped in red on the inside of the box. It is when the owner had bought it. The owner, whom I knew personally, was a collector of office supplies. He'd buy these gadgets, play with them a bit, then keep them.

The stapler is pen-sized. It is, of course, a bit heavier than a pen. The listing does not include the Montblanc pen used for scale.

Comes in the original box with 'Pocket Stapler' written in a very retro font.

This is an original, not a reproduction. Bananastrudel sells only originals.
