Nobility Handheld Electronic Calculator

<< >>
Description
This credit card-sized battery-operated handheld electronic calculator has a maroon and gold-colored metal case and twenty-five rectangular plastic keys. In addition to ten digit keys, a decimal point key, a total key, four arithmetic function keys, and four memory keys, it has an off key, an on/clear, a square root key, a % key, and a clear entry key. The LCD display is behind the keyboard. A mark in front of it reads: Nobility. A mark on the back reads: Made in Taiwan.
A larger calculator that uses the same Nobility logo is 1986.0988.259.
Nobility is most probably a trade name rather than a maker's name.
