silver sunday and showin' my age


do you  know what made this??

then you are showing your age too.......


check out this baby........


this is a vintage
'checkwriter'
for those who didnt know..


back in the day...
(gees...i'm showing my age just with that statement alone !)
...when you wrote a check....
you could stamp the amount with this machine
for a more professional look to your checks....
 can you youngsters even imagine having one of these monstrosities on your desk??


crazy how times have changes.......
most of these are long long gone,
but i collect just about anything with numbers
so this sits in my office now....defunct...but fun to look at
and remember how it used to be.....

we've come a long way baby.......

Hi Jeanne,
as a former banker, I enjoyed the look at this machine very much. It looks so strange today. I remember all those ancient types of machine, we had, such as a Telex with paper tape. Or a Currency Converter, which was as heavy like your cheque printer. Do you remember Punch card machines or mechanical typewriters. Oh, how antique look all those today against the modern computers. It is not so long ago but today most of the people don't know them anymore.
I enjoyed your post very much.
Greetings, Johanna

The guy next to me in Seward at the show I was at, had one of these. I looked the other way. Seriously. I bought three old iron pieces from him. His prices were so cheap that when I saw the check writer, I wouldn't even walk over to see the price because I knew it would be cheap and I would buy it. And, I still have two big adding machines to find homes for. Love yours too!
