This is a steel inventory stamp – it has five rubber wheels that run from 0-10, with the addition of $, c, ½, /. Each wheel can be moved independently so you can set the numbering sequence or monetary value required. [½ c! imagine when that was a possibility someone needed to stamp!]
You can stamp sequentially, or lock the stamp to create the same five digit [or symbol] sequence. This is old skool analogue technology – but how cool are those slightly mis-matched inked numbers?
And- I ask you- who doesn’t like to stamp?
The ink pad shown is for styling purposes only- it is of the same era as the stamp, so has run dry [although never opened.] Fortunately ink pads- in a myriad of ink colours- are still available to buy.
The stamp is made from heavy grade steel and so will be good for stamping into the next century, after coming from the last. It’s had little wear and most of the rubber wheels have not been used.
The Zest stamp is for sale: $35 [provide your own ink pad]
