Description
This is one of Summit’s scientific handheld electronic calculators. It has a white plastic case and twenty rectangular plastic keys. These keys include ten digit keys, a decimal point key, a total key, four arithmetic function keys, a memory key, a % key, a clear key and a clear entry key. Behind the keyboard is an eight-digit red LED display. The on/off switch is right of this. The back edge of the calculator has a power jack as well as buttons for reciprocals, squares, and square roots. A mark on the front edge reads: Summit.
A sticker on the back reads in part: SUMMIT INTERNATIONAL CORP. (/) Serial No. 1905 Model SRM (/) Salt Lake City, Utah (/) made in U.S.A.
The SRM Instruction Manual accompanies the calculator.
Compare 1986.0988.284, another examples of the Summit SRM, and 1986.0988.278, a Summit SE 88M.
