WTB: Old mechanical calculators - 148FS 0711 HL

I am interested in purchasing old mechanical calculators and other
scientific devices. I also collect wooden and metal engineering slide
rules that are in very good or excellent condition. In addition, I am
interested in other mechanical math and science devices such as
planimeters (mechanical integrators) and cipher (encryption/decryption)
machines.

I am interested in any type of mechanical calculator, but I am especially
seeking the "rotary" calculators that were made by Monroe, Friden,
Marchant and other manufacturers from the period of the 1900's through
the late 1960's. I am interested in both electrical and non-electrical
mechanical calculators of both the desk and hand-held models. I am
especially interested in hand-held Curta brand calculators.

I am not interested in adding machines that print on tape or electronic
calculators. However, I do collect non-printing adding machines such as
Comptometers.

If you have an old calculator, slide rule, or other interesting mechanical
device collecting dust in a closet, please send me an e-mail message.
