I am listing this as used, but upon examination, can find no sign the pad has ever been fully inked. One suspects it has been played with a bit, but never used to stamp numerals. No paint fatigue or highlighting or smudging of the handle, no plating worn, either. BOX INCLUDED. Probably from the 1960's. This is close to mint. There are bits of ink on the pad, but it has never been saturated. Ink and pads are apparently still available!!

Obviously, box is included.

Again: This one seems to have not been used for its intended purpose at all. No wear I can see. The numbers show almost no smudging.

6 wheel lever movement 7520-162-7117

GS-005-91960 ( I think that is an old style Federal or DoD stock number)

All parts of this seem to move properly.
