If a duplicate arrangement of these ?ngers is provided as illustrated, it will be evident that by aligning them with predetermined points on the article or sheet to be marked, the stamp will be located in a predetermined position with respect to such points. Such points may, for example, I vide'guiding means for the purpose of enabling be printed on the sheet to be stamped or may the operator to secure proper marking action. be de?ned by lines or characters or the like, which The present invention has as its general object may be incidental to information contained there the provision of locating devices which, by being brought into coincidence with predetermined 15 on.
