National cash register / Kassa
National kassa origineel zwart geleverd en helemaal gerestaureerd met behoud van patina
The cash register was invented in 1879 by James Ritty, a saloon keeper from Ohio, USA. He patented a machine with a mechanism similar to one he had seen count the revolutions of an ocean liner’s propeller in its engine room. There was a bell to ring up sales and it also had an adder that summed all the cash values of the key presses during a day.
Ritty’s invention caught the eye of John H Patterson, when he purchased several machines for use in his store. Patterson brough the rights to the patent by James and John and put it into production under the auspices of his newly formed company, National Cash Register, better now known as NCR.
