This is a group of 2 brass dater machine dies from Indiana. The joint Baltimore & Ohio / NYC for Gary is interesting. They vary a bit in condition and they have not been cleaned. The last picture is a digital manipulation. Because the dies read backwards, it is awkward to read them. This group includes: 

(1) Gary, Ind (both NYC and B&O) #4 

(2) Terre Haute, Ind #3 

Dater dies were used in machines to validate tickets. The dater machines require a die. The dies usually have a location a and a number to help identify who stamped a ticket.
