This stapler was made somewhere between 1955 and 1965 by Vail Manufacturing Co. It is a unique variant with a 2” diameter strike plate and is entirely chromed with a bare aluminum base. It is a designer stapler made back in the day for the wealthy. In 1965, an identical stapler called the Monarch was made after ACCO took over Vail. This original piece can still be used and is in pristine condition.
