Lot #85 - Attleborough Branch Railroad Corporate Sealer 1870

 
 

 mi03
Railroad Attleborough Branch 
Size mixed
Condition Good +

This is a very interesting Massachusetts item. It was made by J. H. Powers & Co., Boston, Mass. It is the corporate sealer from the Attleborough Branch Railroad. This is a New Haven predecessor. A prior owner went to the trouble to have the male die made from the impression of the female die. The impression it makes is 1 3/4" in diameter. The sealer has a smooth working mechanism and it has original red and gold paint trim. Because it's basically cast iron, it's heavy. An unusual piece of hardware in very good condition.
