Description

Object is a large machine similar to a cash-register. It presents a number of columns of numeric keys on a curved front surface. On the right are three columns in red for hundres, tens and units; then three similar columns in black; then a tens and a units column in white. At the center are three levers that can be rotated to a number of positions marked by small labels. On the left is an array of numeric keys for a six-digit number, three digits black and three white. There is a 4.5-inch roll of paper in what appears to be a printer at the left edge. On the right side is a large crank which presumably operates the machine.

On both the front and back is the legend "Anker Werke A.G. Bielenfeld".
