Cash and Credit RegistersElectronic Cash Registers and Point-of-Sale Terminals
Some of these devices simply combined a printing electronic calculator with a cash drawer. More elaborate registers not only tracked accumulated receipts, like a traditional cash register, but handled credit card transactions and allowed clerks to scan merchandise to read off prices. These, in turn, served as input for computer systems.

- This beige electronic cash register has a printing mechanism, an LED display, and a separate, locked cash drawer with a broken key. The interior of the register is accessible and includes a number of circuit boards, the printer mechanism, wires, and fuses. Two circuit boards are covered in plastic and one had double-stick tape and foam attached to it to block the heat of the power source. A disintegrating foam panel is in the front of the unit. Paper and a print cartridge are still in the machine.
