Posted by Lee Surbeck on 06/03/2004 ________________________________________ Could you please send me some information on your Western Union Ticker Tape machine you have listed for sale? I am currently look for an original for use in a public display.
Posted by SECS on 05/13/2004 ________________________________________ This original stock ticker was invented in 1930 by the New York Quotation Company and was manufactured by the Teletype Corporation for the Western Union Telegraph Company. This ticker displaced Western Union's Self-Winding machine as the definitive technology of the period and was designed for superior performance during the often volital and high volume markets of the day. Nicknamed the "Black Box", this machine is in excellent aesthetic condition and has been appraised at over $2.5K by a major New York City auction house. Included is a partial roll of original ticker tape. A wonderful piece of American financial history and an asset to any collection. This stock ticker can be seen in person in New York, if desired.Photos Available Upon Request. $750.00 or Best Offer
