Garage Sale Saturday

This is my favorite find of the year !!!!
A Bates numbering machine
circa 1906 (as far as ican find out)
The first Bates Stamping machine
was invented in 1892 by the
Bates Manufacturing Company in NJ.
It was advertised as the first
automatic Bates numbering machine
ever to be created. Each time the machine was pressed down
onto a sheet of paper, a rotating wheel incremented by one.
Pages were numbered using a six-digit sequence.
For example, page 852 in a document set would be 000852.
Courts and law firms quickly adopted this system
My husband is cleaning it up now so Im
hoping i can use it in my art.
Im so excited about this find!!!!!!
