Remarks                                 :

The catalogue number is very vague. Could be something else.

According to the 1882 catalogue it is a Vertical Loading Machine and horizontal closer, with double clip (no 6) lever (!) 3rd quality.

This is the “improved lever” that you see with bench closers 1202. But there are many bench closers numbered 1202. Some with this improved lever and some with lever no 6
