This auction is for a really nice collector quality vintage Federal “A” Adding and Listing Machine. It was manufactured by the Colt’s Pat ent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company of Hartford , Connecticut , circa 1920. It is has a black metal frame with beveled glass sides so you can see the internal parts moving as it is operated. It is all original and the only thing missing is one number “6” key button. It works great mechanically but should be serviced by someone familiar with it so I am leaving that to the new owner. T is no ribbon or paper included but I am told they can be purchased or fabricated. Included is an original magazine ad for this machine with lots of info. on it’s history. It sold back in 1920 for $300.00 and as the ad states it was on sale for $222.50 at that time. This item is a real treasure and is very heavy. It is approximately 15“ wide, 14” high and 20” deep including the carriage. It weighs approximately 60 lbs.
