Vintage ca. 1915 Train Conductor's and General Mechanical Tally Counter
This is a hard to find hand held mechanical / manual tally counter by Veeder Root Inc from Hartford, CT. This came out of an estate where there were both military and rail conductor occupations; both of which could have used this devise. It works as it should and you can see the rust on one side in particular. I believe this was used to tally people by a train conductor.
