Washburne's O.K. Paper Fastener, first patented in 1903 by James V. Washburne. This exact tin is the hard-to-find 1903 "0-B" brand, an early version of paper fastener made by O.K. Manufacturing Co.  O.K.'s smallest version of their tin (this one) originally contained only 20 paper fasteners (refer to "20 CTS" in picture), although this particular tin contains just 19 pieces...

Washburne's O.K. Paper Fastener, first patented in 1903 by James V. Washburne. This exact tin is the hard-to-find 1903 "0-B" brand, an early version of paper fastener made by O.K. Manufacturing Co.  O.K.'s smallest version of their tin (this one) originally contained only 20 paper fasteners (refer to "20 CTS" in picture), although this particular tin contains just 19 pieces (one went missing somewhere over the past 113 years).

The top reads, "100 No. O-B. Washburne's Pat. Paper Fasteners, Patented June 23, 1903. The center reads 20 CTS and O.K. Trademark." The bottom reads, "Made By the O.K. M.F.G. Co., Syracuse N.Y. U.S.A.". Product measures 1½" in diameter and ½" tall.

Condition: The brass bottom portion of the container is bent/dented, which can be seen in the images. Still - an outstanding piece of antique nostalgia despite the imperfections; this brass badboy belongs in a museum.
