Snagged from a thrift store years ago, because I remember similar shiny chrome staplers on the desks in my Dad's office even longer ago.

This PILOT stapler has its name stamped on its knob, along with "ACE FASTENER CORP. CHICAGO,ILL. MADE IN U.S.A.". Below/behind the knob it is marked "PILOT MODEL NO 402 USE ONLY PILOT 400 STAPLES" and on its underside are PATENT numbers 2033018, 2056480, 2066157, 2103551, 2107169, and 2112941. It is roughly 6-1/2" long. It still works perfectly, and in fact is the one stapler that currently lives on my own desktop. :-)
