Fibonacci Stamper

For the serious series' rubber stamper
  (+9)(+9)

I have a rubber stamp that numbers things. By increments of 1. So boring.

How many times have I wanted to number things in a more interesting series? Perhaps random numbers, primes, or Fibonacci?

Well, never, actually. But if I did, I'd love it to be with that inky, low-res, manual stamper. Going "clunk, click; clunk, click; clunk, click..."

       + for thinking inside the box in a less crowded manner.   

       I tend to file things at random; this would help make chaos out of order.

       I wonder how difficult it would be to build a mechanical linear feedback shift register, which would generate a pseudo-random number pattern.

       If your stamp had 10 digits, and generated Fibonacci numbers starting from 1 and 1, you could only do 49 stamps before running out of space.

       I think - not very, for those skilled in the art of mechanical design.
