This is a nice box and collection! It's ironic to me because it took me owning my first Curta to realize that I never really was taught some basic principles of math. Either because I had :

- terrible teachers
- maybe some learning disabilities

I realized for the first time that I made it through school by brute memorization of math tables and process steps without fully understanding some basic foundations. I actually think I would have been better off if they actually taught us math using a Curta

Extremely nice work! I'd almost have asked you whether all the machines have consecutive serial numbers (not sure if I'd want to know). Wink
