Purchased by my wife at the Grandstand State Fair Antique spectacular. This stapler now serves as a doorstop for our bedroom door. These staplers seem to be the most satisfying to use because of the plunger action, reminiscent of a 60's game show buzzer technology. Another comparison one could make is to a telegraph key, but one would waste a lot of staples trying to staple out Morse code.
