This Bowmar 901C looks 100% identical to the earlier 901B. We don't now the meaning of the "C" in the nameplate and suggest three possibilities:
|• It was manufactured in Canada
• It was Cost reduced
• It shares components with both the Craig 4501 and the Commodore Minuteman 1
dismantling a calculator reveals a lot of information but this Bowmar 901C kept
his secrets. It looks identical to the other known types.
Dear fellow collector - if you have any additional information about this 901C, please drop me a line.
Bowmar Instruments was one of the first casualties of the Calculator Wars and filed in 1976 for bankruptcy. Don't miss a mystery calculator with the Bowmar brand introduced in 1977!
