Description:

Postal staff often refer to this device as a 'round dater'. It is a self-inking device with the ink impregnated within the acrylic die. It is used for marking receipts such as insurance slips as well as registered parcels and letters. It is not ordinarily used for postmarking mail.

New York's Church Street Station Post Office served the 10007 ZIP Code area as a retail station and delivery unit. Neighborhoods surrounding the World Trade Center fell into its service area. Church Street station also received and delivered mail to the World Trade Center, represented by its own ZIP Code 10048. In 2001 the Church Street Station was located in a federal building which had been completed in 1935.

The Church Street Station reopened on July 31, 2004. It had undergone extensive repairs, including replacement of more than eight hundred windows. New lighting and furniture had been installed, but otherwise few changes had been made to the historic building’s marble lobby.
