plastic; tape; metal; ink; rubber; adhesive
Dimensions:
Diameter: 4.1cm (1 5/8in.) Height x Width x Depth: 4.1 x 4.1 x 12.1cm (1 5/8 x 1 5/8 x 4 3/4in.)

Mail Processing Equipment
Place:

Date:
September 11, 2001
Description:
This device is often referred to as a "round dater" by window clerks and other postal staff. It is a self-inking device with the ink impregrenated within the acrylic die. It is used for marking receipts, such as insurance slips, as well as upon registered parcels and letters along seams. It is not ordinarily used for postmarking mail.
X-Stamper Scandinavia A/S of Albertslund, Denmark, patented this self-inking marking stamp. The company developed an acrylic that is impregnated with ink that eliminates the need for an ink pad. This has become the preferred technology for postmark, cancel, and auxillary marking devices. Sun State Marking Corporation is one of many licensees for producing X-Stamper devices.
This handstamp was collected from a postal window on the ground floor of the Church Street Station Post Office, New York, New York, which serviced the World Trade Center. The stamp was last used on September 11, 2001.

Postal staff often refer to this device as a 'round dater'. It is a self-inking device with the ink impregnated within the acrylic die. It is used for marking receipts such as insurance slips as well as registered parcels and letters. It is not ordinarily used for postmarking mail.
New York's Church Street Station Post Office served the 10007 ZIP Code area as a retail station and delivery unit. Neighborhoods surrounding the World Trade Center fell into its service area. Church Street station also received and delivered mail to the World Trade Center, represented by its own ZIP Code 10048. In 2001 the Church Street Station was located in a federal building which had been completed in 1935.
The Church Street Station reopened on July 31, 2004. It had undergone extensive repairs, including replacement of more than eight hundred windows. New lighting and furniture had been installed, but otherwise few changes had been made to the historic building’s marble lobby.

Date:

Description:
This band dater has the months, dates, and years affixed to bands that can be rotated into position to mark the correct date. To use, the handstamp rims are positioned over the space that will receive an imprint. The handle is pressed down, and the marking stamp assembly lowers, flipping 180 degrees in the process. After making an imprint, the marking die and date wheels retract and assume their original position. When not in use, the marking die and selected month, date, and year type on the bands are pressed against an ink pad mounted in the recess under the handle. This type of handstamp is used for marking receipts such as insurance slips as well as on registered parcels and letters along seams. It is not ordinarily used for postmarking mail.
This hand stamp was collected from a postal window on the ground floor of the Church Street Station Post Office, New York City, across from the World Trade Center. The stamp was last used on September 11, 2001.
