I found a Centenial Model A ticket dater at a show.
Does anyone make an ink ribbon for these, or any ink ribbon that is an inch and a half wide?

There is someone, but his name escapes me. He is in Illinois and is a dealer. Les may be his 1st name. He makes dater dies to spec as well.

I did an extensive internet search for anyone who might make things like that. I couldn't find anything. If there is someone making ribbon, and especially custom-made stamping dies, I would absolutely love to find out who that is.
I would love to make a new die for my model railroad layout.
If anyone knows who this vendor might be, please post it here or PM me!

I bought a couple of ribbon from him a few years ago, worked just fine.
