The pictures below show larger front and back views of the (2) Different Old Plastic Grocery Store Handy Calculator Adders or Counters in this lot. They are not dated but they are all old They are believed to be from the 1960s. These counters are different but they were all used in the same way. You would push the buttons to add your total as you do your grocery shopping. The top one pictured was made in Japan and the other two were made in Hong Kong.

One of these is unopened with its colorful advertising card with easy instructions on the back. It pictures a 1960s young woman shopping in a grocery store. The original price is stamped on it. The “QUICK - ADDER” counter has buttons for cents, dimes, and dollars. Besides the instructions on the back, the packaging reads as follows:

PENROSE EASY – ADD
KEEPS A RUNNING TOTAL
FOR THE SHOPPER ON A BUDGET
59c
HANDY ADDING MACHINE FOR OFFICE, SCHOOL, & SHOPPING
ADDS UP TO $20.00
NO. 1440
BROOKS – HARTFORD INC.
HARTFORD, CONN. 06114, DIST.
MADE IN HONG KONG


The second smaller adder is marked on the two sides as follows:

FAIRGROVE *
SHOPPER’S HELPER
DOLLARS – DIMES – CENTS
U.K. DESIGN REGD NO. 966345
MADE IN HONG KONG

Both of these for one price! To judge the sizes the packaging on the one measures about 4-7/8'' x 5-3/4'' x 3/4''. Both of these work well and they appear to range from excellent and mint unused condition as pictured.
