Hi Prez,
Looks like you have another fantastic addition to your collection,this handheld punch was the reason Bell punch was etablished in 1878,prior to this time quality ticketing equipment had to be imported from the U.S.A,the above punch types were beginning to be used by major cities in the U.K such as Glasgow etc,Bell punch was formed to aquire the patents rights to these ticket punches from the U.S.A,and then market them to British Tram / Omnibus operations,and your punch is a example of these early punches, a extremley rare piece of transport history.

Thank you Prez for sharing these superb pictures.
