    Here is a neat office date/time stamp clock. I'm not sure how accurate the clock works after stamping a pile of documents!
    It is a Dorson Jr., Date/Time Stamp Clock
    It is 4-1/8" tall, 2-3/8" wide & deep.
    Dial is marked:
    Dorson Jr.
    PAT. 2054127
    OTHER PATS. PEND.
    Back of case is marked:
    DORSON
    4254
    CHICAGO,ILL
    The brass tag is marked:
    NAT. AUTO INS.
    1688
    The wheels on the back set the Month, Day & Time to stamp documents.
    Edit:
    To answer Bruce's question:
    looking at photo #4 beginning with roller on the left by brass tag:
    Month: Jan - Dec
    Day Numbers: 1-0
    Day Numbers 1-0
    Years: 51-56
    Time: AM-PM-M
    I am missing the base & ink pad that was part of this clock.
    The 4th photo, one drawing of the patent that is a side cut of the clock showing the setting mechanism.
    Thanks for looking,
    Dave

      Looks like you could set the year as well as manually setting AM/PM in the stamp. Is that true? If so, is the range of years? Thanks for sharing Dave!

      Thank you for the trip down memory lane! As I look up Dorson - your post pops up.
      My great Uncle owned Dorson - who then sold it to my father in the 80's. My father recently passed away and he loved his clocks! Glad to see the love the clocks is there out there! :)
