Casio - MINI CM-605


Brand: Casio
Model: MINI CM-605
Type: Calculator
Batteries: AA x 4
Lifetime: Introduced: 1974
Terminated: unknown
Notes: Early Casio model, quite a nice horizontal design. The display shows only 6 characters, the remainder of the result can be viewed by pressing the right-arrow key and holding it.

This is one of a series of Casio "Mini" calculators, the first one of which was introduced as a low price calculator in 1972.

The display has a peculiarity, the zero is lower case! I don't know any other calculator that has a lower case zero.

The number 170.50 for example looks like this:  17o.5o

The calculator runs on batteries as well as on a power adapter.
