Hotchkiss Paper Fastener No. 1

Hotchkiss Paper Fastener No. 1


E.H. Hotchkiss Co., Norwalk, CT

This attractive stapler sold between 1898-1924 for $1.50. The instructions for its use were straight forward enough. "Place the machine on a solid foundation, letting upper part rest on material to be stapled and strike plunger a quick blow where you wish to make staple." Those were the days!
