Brass National Cash Registers
I started collecting brass National Cash Registers because I am an engineer and enjoy things mechanical. I also enjoy the beauty of a restored brass register with their Tiffany styled cases. These mechanical marvels and their plain metal successors are a tribute the ingenuity and skill of their creators. Not many examples of this intricate mechanical era are still available on the antiques market.
I have been collecting National Cash Registers since 1990 and have acquired a very respectable sample of interesting machines. Below are a few pictures.
The 3 machines in the foreground include model #2, #50.25 and #8 with clock.
Ok folks, here it is 12 pages on everything you
need to know about your ornate National Cash Register.
Including original Owner's Manuals and early NCR catalogues
showing your register! Check them out!

4.What principle is your National Cash Register machine? Crank, Lever, etc.
5. Does you machine have a top sign and/or name plate (and how to spot a fake)

I do not know much about later style registers.
I need to know Model#, Serial#, finish, special features (top sign?), condition of case, drawer and operation, plus information from label under drawer etc.

The best reference books on National
Cash Registers are The Incorruptible
Cashier Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (Vol. 2 is best for new collectors) by Richard
L. Crandall and the late Sam Robins. They should be available to order through
your local antique shop's book section. They are expensive books ($40) and very
hard to find (out of print).
