Confused about this item. Bought it at a Randsburg, Ca. antique shop. It works! pull the bottom "bell" handle and the counter advances. The top "IN" and "OUT" tab rotates. I believe this was what the conductor used on streetcars and/or trolley's to keep accurate count of passengers getting on and off at each stop. Has patent dates, but no company name or patent number. Might be called a fare or trip register. Anyone have any ideas what this is? Randsburg was a gold mining town and some Ghost Towns of the past had streetcars or trolleys.
