THIS IS AN EARLY MECHANICAL CALCULATOR MADE IN CALIFORNIA USA BY MARCHANT AROUND 1920. IT'S SERIAL # is XL 96069
Marchant Calculators was founded by the Marchant Brothers, makers of early mechanical and electrical calculating machines. Marchant Calculators, Inc. was based in Emeryville, Oakland, California.
This Machine is similar to the calculating machine based on a pinwheel invented by Odhner in Sweden in1874.
The Computer History Museum in Mountain View California and a Museum in Washington DC have machines like this one in their collections.
Researching this piece has been a fun learning experience. I learned a few interesting facts like: Long Division took over 40 steps on this machine. But people who used them daily could use them so quickly that it was actually a faster method then a pencil and paper.
THIS SUPER COOL ANTIQUE IS A GREAT HISTORICAL PIECE.
