0 0 6 4 5 4 3 2 - The magic number


2 times 2 times 2 times 3 times 26893 equals 0 0 6 4 5 4 3 2 ... The magic number!




Why?

Well, in almost all advertising pictures of the CURTA, the setting register has the value 00645432!
The question is, why Curt Herzstark used 00645432 already in 1946 - and this number was used again and again until 1968?

I am only aware of three other exceptions:
1950:
- https://curta.li/04_werbung/1950_innova_01.html
- https://curta.li/04_werbung/1950_innova_02.html
1951:
- https://curta.li/04_werbung/1951_schach.html (the upper picture)
1953:
- https://curta.li/04_werbung/1953_curta_press_france.html
- https://curta.li/04_werbung/1953_innova_01.html

Cool
