J. C. COX TILL WITH BELL
This rare c1900s handsome mahogany, brass, and glass countertop coin till was invented, patented, and manufactured by J.C.Cox, an inventor of several devices to change gold coins, to store coins in tills, and to track payments made over a public house bar, counter, or elsewhere.
The two glass-fronted racks to the left and right held counted coins, while the central mechanism carried coins through a transaction, allowing both the customer and the clerk to see which coins were used as payment, and which were due in correct change. At each “stop” the coin sounded a bell housed in the lower portion of the central mechanism.
The till will need some TLC to allow the lever to smoothly move from one side to the other and for the central mechanism to work properly. The bell is audible when the lever travels across. There are no keys but the exterior condition of the till is in very good condition taking into account its age and use.
