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.

    it is a fare register, the IN/OUT informs the patrons where collection is done, in or outside the car. I just bought one myself, gong to set it up in a display, it works! Not this design.
    mine looks like this but its not this one.

    made by international register, still in business under a dufferent name.
