Brass Cash Registers
Top Signs
As the founderies poured out new brass registers, they also poured out different top signs. The early registers are sort of hard to tell which top sign went on them. Some were just posts that went into two holes. Others had 4 screws but most only had 2 holes. If the people couldn't get the right one, they often drilled new holes. I am guilty of this from my early days. Look to see if you have extra holes and you may find that you have the wrong sign. I don't have a large one in brass like the glass one in the last section.
