I've used them in past

I was a Yeoman in the Navy. Service records used this system. Awards, schools, Orders, Transfers, medical, financial/disbursements, achievements, legal, etc. were placed in individual records and maintained for the duration of the enlistee or officer. If you were a member of the crew when the ship was launched you received a "Plank Holders certificate". Crossing the Equator gained another certificate.

thank you for your service

Thank you Bonnie.

These punches are still being made and used. New, they retail for around $12. to $15.00.  I see that yours says to "OIL OCCASIONALLY" but I never did. Oil can ruin type-written documents.
