In 1970, a local drugstore donated its cash register "National", manufactured in the United States in 1905, to the Museum Perleberg. After 65 years of use, this former novelty was out of date and came to the museum as "ancient". But it was not displayed as an exhibit in the city history collection but instead used as a cash register because of its decorative look and functionality. The children most of all loved the jingle every time the cash drawer opened. But the jingle mechanism had not been added for this purpose but to counter a different human passion instead. To prevent his staff from illegally reaching into the cash drawer, James Ritty invented the cash register in Dayton, Ohio, in 1879, which could only be opened with the typical jingle. "Miss National" made its way to Perleberg to make it easier for the staff of the Sichler drugstore to remain on the straight and narrow, representing the good flair of old-school retail in Perleberg until today.
