Original Listing:

A functional, working antique spool style stapler, manufactured in the USA by Bates Manufacturing Company, complete with included refill spools and even the staple puller pincher tool that slides in the bottom compartment. This old beauty is perfect for vintage home or office decor, or perhaps put back into use!

The Model B stapler, circa 1934, fits a wire spool onto the back end. There is a diagram and information printed on the bottom of the unit (see photo). Three complete wire spool refills are included, two of which are still in the original packaging labeled "Help win the war - save material." on the boxes, dating them to WWII era. A partial spool of wire comes pre-strung on the stapler as well.

Stapler measures 8" long. Unit has not been cleaned prior to listing to preserve the wear and patina.

As I can include only 5 photos, please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like more photos or have any questions, I'm happy to help!

This set will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail (medium flat rate). If you prefer an alternate shipping method, please contact me prior to purchase so I can adjust the cost. I will also ship internationally - please contact me prior to purchase for an exact quote.

Feel free to message me with any questions and I will reply as soon as possible! More photos available upon request. Please check my Policies page for helpful shipping and payment info - http://www.etsy.com/shop/onerustynail/policy
