Code: M22873-143


W: 8.5cm (3.3")H: 9cm (3.5")D: 6cm (2.4")


Hand stamp with cast metal print plate approximately 8.5 x 6.5cm and wooden handle.  It has a large King's crown at the top with A.M. beneath and a stores reference number below ' H/531379/41' (1941).  Too large to be a document stamp so presumably used for marking equipment or boxes/crates for equipment.  We have never seen anything like it before so it must be rare.  A great looking item in very good condition.  Stock code M22873-143.
