In the early days candy was $.01 per bag and whiskey was $.05 per shot.
NCR 313 registers were always $.05 machines which meant they were really not that well suited for small candy purchases. How did candy stores and other stores handle the less than $.05 entries with so many $.05 registers ?

There are actually quite a few models designated for penny ring up , like 210, 215, 310, 312, 316, 320, 322, and 326. Plus any 0, 1, 5, 6, 11, 12 could be special ordered for penny ring up. I'm sure I have missed a couple as well, but you get the picture.

I am quite familiar with all the models you mention.
My point was that many of the lesser informed refer to a 313 as the candy store register.
My question is still how did a store with a $.05 ring up balance the drawer against the sales at the end of the day. One hundred years ago a few cents here and there was the same as a few quarters and fifty cent pieces here and there now.

Couple years ago a fellow brought over to the house a wide bodied large 300 series register that was in need of repair. The fellow said it was a "CANDY STORE" model because it had a penny ring up. I asked how he came to that conclusion, and the response was the seller, which is a well known cash register authority, told him so. Fellow said all registers with penny ring up's are candy store models regardless of how large. Guess some register guy's say what ever it takes to make a sale. Jim and Todd's posts were truthful, but the wide body 300 with a .01 - $10.00 ring up leaves a little to the imagination. This wide body 300 series candy store register must have been "SUPER RARE" because of the .01 - $10.00 ring up.
