This is a group of 2 brass dater machine dies from Beacon, New York. 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) #1 lots of wear and barely legible 

(2) #2 is in fine condition.

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. All of the dies in this auction are from one collection.
