This wonderful Toshiba LC-821 was introduced already in 1977 and defined together with its successor LC-830 the standard design of a simple LCD calculator.
The wonderful pouch of this gold colored calculator was
unfortunately never repeated. It looks really great.
The inside view of the LC-821 demonstrates once again the simple construction of the early Toshiba calculators. Don't miss the LC-810 to get an idea of the development progress within one year.
