In cleaning out the attic, I have found a Aktiebolaget Facit machine manufactured by R.C. Allen Business Machines Inc. Grand Rapids, Michigan, and 2 posting machines. One is about 8 to 10 inches tall with a glass front, and the other is much shorter. They are both Burroughs. The larger one has a brass plate on the lower front with these numbers on it: 6451 6-357475 and the smaller one has the same style brass plate with these numbers on it: 3-436164. These Burroughs machines are much too heavy for me to move and check for any more identifying marks. I have no idea what these machines are worth, but I plan to have a garage sale during the summer months, and I want to sell them. Any information anyone has on any of these machines would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to keep them, but I would like to find them a good home.
