Size standard 
Condition excellent

This is a group of 4 brass dater machine dies. 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) Terre Haute, Ind #6 

(2) Lasalle Street Station, Chicago, Ill #30 (nickel plated) 

(3) East Cleveland Union Station #4 

(4) NYC Extra #41

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.
