I have two web sites, and The Stapler Exchange which is the first web site dedicated to antique and vintage fasteners. I started the Stapler Exchange in 1997. That site was the first for me. I have also produced a news letter that ran for 3 years, but because of poor health had to let it go. is also listed on Facebook and Flickr. I have several videos on You tube Highlighting my collection. Unlike other collector on line, I do a lot of research and share my findings with others. Visit my site and I guarantee you this, "You about to learn something new". (Read more)

  44. I wood have thought it would be late 20's to early 30's.
  45. Try "Noiseless". The Noiseless didn't do well on the market for some reason.
  46. I use to be very active typewriter collector and would have to add that Royal started selling their portables in multiple colors around 1932 - 1935.
