The machine was made for use on countertops in drug stores but not in Post Offices. In 1930, it cost 2 ¢ to mail a letter, that's about 30¢ by todays standards.This machine has been restored to it's original 1930's condition. It works perfectly but the postage stamps in the machine are fake copies.Size is 7" x 5" x 2".
