Curta Calculator

I am the proud owner of a Curta Type I calculator.  These devices are probably the coolest devices ever made.  If you don’t know about the Curta, click on this link to read the Wikipedia entry about them.

The Curta Type I that I own has serial number 54798, and I bought it on eBay from some guy in France.  It works well, and is truly a remarkable little machine.

This page at Curtamania.com has the stats on my Curta, as well as some pictures from it’s previous owner.
