More details about this item

Made in Hong Kong in the 1960's, probably after 1965. Includes a Clear Cover and Instruction Sheet. Add, Subtract, Multiply... No batteries needed! Those were the days... Body is plastic, with metal faceplate containing the numbers. Fun collectible for the math or science lover. Size: about 3.75 inches tall; 5.5 inches wide; 5.25 inches deep Condition: Appears to be unused. I bought it as a curiosity several years ago. The "pointer" (or stylus) is missing, but a pencil or pen would serve the purpose. Clear plastic cover is all in one piece, not torn, but slightly discolored from age. Box is in poor condition, but I will send it along. I found this information on John Wolff's Web Museum site - Small Rotary Adding Machines "The Swift Handy Calculator is a Hong Kong copy of the Italian Addipresto. The copy is actually better made than the original, as it includes two metal reinforcements to strengthen the case and resist the tension of the detent and carry springs. The Swift faceplate includes complement scales for subtraction, but the machines are otherwise identical." USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Consider making more than one purchase to save on shipping. Please take a moment to read the Seller Policies for more information.
