I found this at a local thrift store. I really didn't need any more staplers, and at first I put it back and wandered off. But then I thought "McDonnell-Douglas, they made the CF-18 Hornet, the F-15 Eagle and the Harrier jump jet! When am I ever going to find something like this again?" So, I parted with $3 and left with the stapler. It was made in the U.S.A. by ACCO and mine even came loaded with staples! McDonnell-Douglas itself disappeared in 1997 when it merged with Boeing.
