What Pattern is your National Cash register?

Did you know that Tiffany studios in NY designed some NCR case styles? It's true, you may own a piece of Tiffany Bronze!

The best way to try and let you know what pattern you machine is with pictures and model numbers. This is a big job so it may take me awhile to fill in this page.

There are some other patterns and if you don't see your NCR pattern here this could be a good sign as it may mean you have a rare item.  Contact me for an appraisal!

Now, you should have a pretty good idea of how to describe your machine. It is time to start looking at what special items your machine may have.
