Vintage Calculator Trinket Box

I've been having way too much fun today! I gutted the inside of an old calculator from 1973, and turned it into a trinket box.

I had to look on google to find out what kind of history this calculator had, and I discovered it was one of Texas instruments 1st ever calculators!

I love how, on the instructions on the back, it tells you how to do basic math with it.

I guess back in the day, this must have seemed so high tech and fancy-smanchy.

It cost $120 back in 1973, WOW! source
