Dalton Adding, Listing and Calculating Machine. c. 1910 Truly Antique.

Purchased from a garage sale. Mainly for the keys I think. “The Dalton adding-listing machine was the first of its type to use only ten keys – first 10-key add-lister.” From  Vintage Calculators . This is a heavy beast. You get a workout lifting it around. Right now it sits at the bottom of the linen closet.

Status: It has a future purpose (not jewelry) so it won’t be heaved. Estimated heave-ho date: June. Not too far away really.

p.s. I posted this from home w/ my iPhone, so no neutral background for this puppy. Reserve the right to re-shoot.
