    Anyone know what this is? The top pushes down, there is a small punch that goes down. The side has a small opening to allow some kind of material to slide in. Thanks

      Hard to tell but it might be a "stapleless" stapler. Put two pieces of paper under the foot, all the way in, and push the plunger. If I'm right they will be fastened together with a clever folding action.

      One hole puncher.

      But I think UncleRon is right.

      This is an Ideal Clipless Paper Fastener. Made in Japan in the early 20th century. Yours is missing the wooden case. You can find more info here: https://americanstationer.wordpress.com/2016/05/30/ideal-clipless-paper-fastener/.
