    While out and about, doing some in town errands, I needed to stop by the Thomasville public library to drop off a couple of borrowed items.
    It is a small library..its a small town, a little over 4,000 souls and because it is small, it is not hard to notice this good size and great shape of this National Cash Register on display. It was a gift to the library by the William Adams Kimbraugh family, descendants of a family who's beginnings go back to the 1800s in these parts.
    In the 1880s, the family began and operated a general store, selling food and other sundries.
    This was their cash register that was in use.
    I was told that the library has had offers to purchase the register, yet it cannot ever be sold. The family put in writing at the time of donating to the library, that the register shall Allways Be a permanent display.
    It is available for public viewing six days a week.

    Thank You,

      Beautiful register. Money. It's a hit.
    2. AnythingObscure AnythingObscure, 26 days ago
      I luvvvs me some Cyndi Lauper music too Thomas, but this National Register is truly the star of the show here. How fortunate for your Thomasville Library to have been bequeathed it -- also as fortunate for all the rest of your citizens (and any others who might visit) to benefit from their willingness/ability to display it properly as its donors requested. VERY COOL!!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

      Myself, I'm most curious about that box w/round front opening and lever-looking-thing on top is, above and to the left of the cash drawer -- I don't think I've ever seen any such attachment to a National machine before. Do you happen to know what it is or was??

      Also, though presumably the library staff is well aware though it might not actually be displayed, there should be a series of labels on the underside of its cash drawer that would give exact info regarding its serial numbers, dates, original owner's store name, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if, for the asking, somebody behind the counter might shortly be able to provide you pictures of all that, if not being able to actually open/turn upside down the drawer to show 'ya in person...?? :-) :-) :-)

      THANKS FOR SHARING!!! :-) :-) :-)

      Smart people those Kimbraughs!
      This way everyone will enjoy part of their quaint town’s history well into the future.
      (I have an anchor off the Yankee Blade Gold ship that went down during a storm in 1854. Right now it’s in my daughter’s front yard, it belongs in a museum. I have had offers, but I can’t get myself to sell it.)

      The “box” to the left...
      Maybe to weigh produce?
    6. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 24 days ago
      Ha! What was I thinking? It’s not like you can weigh a watermelon on it.
      It is a curiosity....

      Back in 1975 The wife and I and the kid were driving up to New Brunswick Canada on a camping vacation. We stopped at an on-site auction along the way in Maine.
      There was a Brass National Cash Register about the same size in a wheel barrel!!!
      No one was bidding on it. Got down to 25 bucks!!!! I was going to bid on it but the wife said where you going to put it. Our car was a 72 Plymouth Scamp (Great Car!!!) Full of camping gear and the kid!!! Thought about it and sadly decided to keep the KID!!!
