Below are scanned/converted copies of 1900's Original Cash Register Catalogues. These are very fascinating as they show how NCR promoted the features of each register. You should be able to find your register somewhere in this set of links with exception of the brass 1000 class drawer operated registers and the brass lever operated registers. If you have a wooden autographics or receipt writer look here.

Currently I have 2 original catalogues scanned and broken up into several links each. The early 1898 catalogue was over 124 pages and has most of the 2 and 3 digit model numbers machines. This catalogue is early and before the reclassification of 1908 where NCR renumbered all their models mostly going to 3 digit model numbers.

The 2nd catalogue was not dated but must be from around 1909 (or 1915) and shows only one or two of each of the types of registers with several of the 400 and 500 class crank registers shown as well as floor models. If you have one of the these look here.

This took me hundreds of hours to put together so enjoy.

I will try to add others in the future. Please do not email me for others. I will post as I get them. I do not plan to do later plain registers from after 1920.
