Description

This object is a prototype larger wheel with more characters for a later higher-end product that was never put into production. It needed a larger, slower motor to rotate the wheel, and at times the print wheel had stability problems. The object is in a plastic case. There is a white sticker on the top of the case with the number 4 handwritten on it.
