You do not see any paper punch purchases or sales on my ebay, so that is an outright lie.
I have purchased metal punches, biopsy punches, vintage letter stamps as well as date stamps from the 1800's.
Here is my explanation, since the smear is on me I will put it to rest..
I work on model airplanes, trains, and war figurines. Am I a little bit of a geek, I suppose I am but, I am a true collector.
The metal punches are to stamp the model numbers on the bottom of the train sets into the chassis. Metal punches dont work on Rolex paper. #242, #1010, etc.
The biopsy punch is made for human skin tags. I use them to remove skin tags on my French Bulldog and sometimes to make perfect circles in paint to apply to everything from iris' on an eyeball to decals on an airplane wing. They are 2mm punches and are WAY too big to punch dots in a certificate. It would also be impossible to achieve and do correctly as the paper would tear, the dots would be crooked and 2mm is too big to fit in the register box.
Vintage Letter stamps are used to add authenticity to the cardboard train boxes and to identify them as "Lionel Locomotive" or "Cargo" Trains, etc.. Please note the stamp is only 10 letters and doesnt look like any stamp you would ever find on a Rolex Cert. You couldnt even fit "Bobs Jewelery" on it if you wanted to.
Finally, the 1800's block stamps. Well, last time I checked no Rolex'es were made in the 1800's so date stamps 150 years before production wouldnt do a counterfeiter much good on a 1972 certificate. The stamp is for the figurines from the 1800's to date stamp what wars which figurines went with. Spanish American War, The Navajo wars, Black hawk War, etc.. There were hundreds of wars in the 1800's and this was a great and rare find for me, Not for Rolex, Sorry.
