This semi-automatically enumerating stamp was made by AB Cryptoteknik in Stockholm (Sweden) somewhere between 1939 and 1958. It was used for printing serial numbers on operator manuals, warranty cards, checklists, etc., and advances to the next number after 1, 2, 3 or 4 copies.

The device is also known as a numerator, but Hagelin named it Paginator. It was not only used by AB Cryptoteknik and Crypto AG themselves, but was also sold to printing houses and to other companies via stationary stores.
