A small ivory-handled wax sealer for a steam rail road, possibly used in sealing envelopes for shipping on the rail line. The sealing end is brass and has the word “quick” incised over a primitive steam locomotive depiction. The entire piece measures only 1.75” in length. Extremely rare. From the M.D. Kast Collection. -59258
