The Hamilton cash register was built in Canada by the Hamilton brass works. These machines were basically the same as the National register but with a few cabinet sections re-designed. Canada couldn't get into Canada so a VP of National made a deal with Hamilton. Even after National established their own co. in Canada, Hamilton continued to build machines for a short time. Note the resemblance to the National model "2" fine scroll & the "8" Fleur-De-Lies machine.
