This has to be one of our coolest finds that we’ve had to date! The Italian Addipresto adding machine allows you to add numbers up to 9 999 999, as well as performing subtraction and multiplication! And it’s pretty easy to work*! It also happens to be in mint condition, with its original box, which is in pretty amazing condition, especially given that most people date the Addipresto to the 1950s! I’m not sure that this plastic version isn’t a bit later though? I know that they originally made the Addipresto in metal, and I wonder if people aren’t maybe assigning the date of the metal version to this plastic model? Regardless though, it definitely has some proper age to it.
A very cool ‘calculator’ that would make a great gift for anyone who’s a fan of the quirky and unusual!
* I’ve included a photo that I nicked off bidorbuy that explains how the machine works
