    I sold my "0" this week. I bought it about 15 years ago from a fellow serviceman in Baltimore. I gave him some money plus a restored 313. It was built in 1893 & had the short key arms but where the finger rail went on the coin slab, it had plugs in the holes. It also had a small drawer loop like a 35 drawer but the drawer front was the style that takes a Patterson pull. It had a fairly unusual double key set up. It has a .20 & a .15 which if you press them togeather it comes up with a wide indicator for .35. It also did the same foe the .10 & .08 coming up .18. I restored it right after I got it. I put a repro rope rail on it & I got a repro glass top sign from Col. Gill for it. I later bought a Patterson pull & a wide scroll clock for it. I never put these on as it was a keeper & that seems to be on the bottom of my list of things to do. When I made the deal I told the buyer that they were available. He bought it with the provisal that I put them on. I didn't really want to do it as I might screw it up. I did it & it was easier than I thought. The little stippals in the design gave me a good guide for my drill bit.
    I'm sorry to see it go but to moneys good.

    I predicted this a few weeks ago and posted this prediction.
    "I predict someone will find and buy a #0 before the year ends......
    Dick sold one, therefore, someone FOUND one....... This counts as confirmation.
    I'm sorry to say, the cash register collecting/ collect-ability is still going downhill and this is why rarer registers
    are coming out for sale.
    I further predict a "VERY LARGE COLLECTION" will hit the market with-in the next 8 months.

    Beautiful machine, I am restoring one just like it now. Why the extra wide .35 flag?

    Its a double 20 and 15 cents, the 35 has to cover these flags

    It also has the .10 & .08 comes up with an extra wide Indicator when you press both keys at once. For those of you that haven't seen these double keys, the company would or could make it easier to expand the customers ring up for a few items. If you press the .20 key, the .20 indicator comes up or the .15 is the same way. They also normally had the neck tie system that prevented you from pressing 2 keys at once. On these special side by side keys they put a little screw in the .35 indicator tail which had a miniature neck tie on it. the neck tie had a bigger hole in it for the pin to go in. If you pressed the 20 the neck tie would move to the right blocking the .15 due to the hole in the middle. The same with the .15. but if you press both together the key arm tails catch both sides of the neck tie lifting the neck tie & the .35 indicator . The .35 has 2 indicators like a fork & is made large enough to hide the 20 & 15 flags as they also come up. You could make only a few of these setups as it takes to much space. I have seen them on a few larger machines & even these are sort of rare.

    I have a model 6 that has 4 sets of double indicators and a 4 chair barber shop model 246 with 8 sets. This option is not really that uncommon, I see them regularly.

    I once had an eleven key detail adder model 5 FDL that rang up to $20.00 with all kinds of various denomination combinations. Sold it to Rick Petty.
