I saw this early Chicken Scratch Register on Craigslist without a model and serial number tag. Upon giving it a close examination I noticed the bottom row of key checks are divided into three sections. Don't recall seeing this on a brass case register before. I have seen it on the 138/147 cast iron registers. Any ideas on why this was made like this?

The keys were separated into cents, dimes, then dollars. I'm sure this was to compete with the Boston cash registers as their keyboard was set up the same way.

I have one. It has model "37" S/N S34547 on it. I found it locally many years ago. It had to be a "Knocker" against Boston machines.
