This all-original 1914 National Cash Register has its original owner's glass sign - Frank Matschinger, who operated Astoria Cafe in St. Paul, Minnesota and sold Yoerg's Beer. The restoration tackles a jammed machine, restoring power to the motor, rust and crud, a surprise inside, tear down, and lots and lots of sanding and polishing bronze surfaces.

A subsequent owner of this machine was Como Park Pharmacy, as evidenced by a hand-painted glass sign on the other side. Because this cash register was used at a bar, it has unique keys like "Cigar," "Lunch", and "Pint", and was designed to face the back wall behind the bar, so no number indications are shown on the back side. The tag indicates a serial number and the model number 442-E-L (series 400 with four rows of keys with printer, Electric, Lighted).

The label underneath the case drawer shows the original purchase date of April 17, 1914 by Frank Matschinger, a German immigrant to St. Paul.

İyi bir çalışma olmamış, restorasyon aşamaları güzelce videolanmamış. Temizlik tam olarak yapılmıyor. Sırası iyi değil. Ben pek sevmedim.

What a great restoration! Thanks for saving this piece of Americana from the brass scrap heap!! I looked up the proprietor and he was an interesting man. Keep the videos coming, sir! Are you able to say how many manhours it took and the cost of restoration?

I was just wondering why you didn’t refinish the inside of the cash drawer. Beautiful restoration though.

это не реставрация. дерево не сделано. обработанные детали не вычищены до конца. сам механизм не разобран полностью и не отдефектован и не смазан заново. это так мелкий ремонт. наведение лоска и не более. задумка интересная. реализация подкачала. но всё равно неплохо.

I bet before you were born you made a pair of forceps before coming out, handing them to the doctor 🤣

I used to repair typewriters (as a hobby) so I have a good feeling what you went through to get that beautiful register gleaming again. A job, respectfully well done. Thanks for the video. Too bad I can only hit the like button once!
