Brass Cash Registers
 
World Cash register (inv # 156)

Serial number: N/A
Date Built: around 1894 ?
Cabinet Style: Cast iron
Finish: Nickel plated

This is a World cash register. It is one of about 15 different register built under different names to compete with the National cash register. William McGraw started the Seymour cash register co. in 1894 & over the years built a lot of different registers. Each had a different design & name. They were cheap & some like the World cash register had a nice appearance. It is a detail adder style register meaning that each key arm had a separate counter wheel to add up a total.
I have restored this one to the best of my ability. The cabinet has been polished & nickel plated. The key arms have also been nickel plated. The indicators have been painted & lettered. I have had new key captions & some indicator signs remade. The cabinet is a great design & the indicator area is extremely attractive. It has a nice finger rail above the drawer. It really presents well. It works fairly well but should be considered a display piece.

Grade: 1 or restored.
Weight: 100 pounds?
Measurements: 20” W, 17” D, 22” W
Price: $1,750
