Regular price $25.95 Sale

This used Square Basket Weave stamp was made by Kelly Tool Co. It is tool number 262. This Square Basket Weave Stamp is a great example of their craftsmanship. The tool measures 1/4" in width & 13/32" in length. Stamped on the tool is "Midas 262 " and "Kelly Tool Co New Zealand". There is quite a bit of plating chipped off and corrosion on this stamp, including on the tool face.

A later tool company whose tools started showing up in the USA in early 80s was Kelly Tool Co. of New Zealand. They sold their tools in this country under the Midas name. They were very nice tools with crisp detail and an attractive golden finish. These tools have become quite collectible because of the short time they were available.
