Risky Fun

Gosh, weren't toys so much more interesting a hundred years ago? This little cash register is a fine example of all that dangerous stuff: metal tabs, crimped corners, spring loaded drawer and (most likely lead based) enamel paint.

The American made Earl is almost a foot wide and doesn't have the mechanical finesse of other registers made in the 20's, 30's and 40's.

Yeah, there's a whole lot of rust on this baby.
