Antique Cast Iron Cummins' No.52 Perforating Machine
Item #:
Heavy cast iron desk top perforating machine in original paint having gold and red striping. Used to perforate/cancel stamps.
Painted & striped cast iron. Nickle handle cover.
Height: 9-3/4". Width: 11-1/2". Depth: 7-3/4".
Locality and Period:
Chicago or New York. c.1892.
Model 52 from the B.F. Cummins Perforator Company of Chicago, Illinois. This machine has a width to accommodate a row of five regular sized stamps which necessitates a sheet of stamps being folded or separated in half prior to the perforating operation. These groups of pins forming the set of initials are so spaced that when one-half sheet of regular sized stamps are perforated, the design appears in the center of each stamp. It is common, therefore, to find more recent stamps with their varying sizes having split or off-center perforations and, of course, double-sized stamps will contain part of an extra set of initials, or two sets due to the width of the stamp.
