I used to work for a wine and Spirit merchant in London, We had a series 200 for keeping sales ledgers on. This was originally a £sd Machine that was decimalised when England changed currency in the 70's. The machine had a serial number that showed it was imported from Detroit, It was a great machine it clanked along and did a great job considering it was nearly 25 years old. We also had an F 1400 £sd machine used for invoicing with crossfooter and Multiplication. It was connected to a Powers Samas 80 column Punch card machine, the cards were then processed by a bureau to list sales reorders and agents commission. It was deemed to costly to have decimalised and came to the end of the road.
