Hall-Welter Speedrite 914 cheque writer

This Speedrite cheque writer (also termed ‘cheque protector’) by Hall-Welter Co Inc, one of the established American manufacturers of cheque writers, was manufactured in USA around the 1970s, and was used to produce inked figures on a cheque by pulling the lever on the side of the machine. Machines like this would have been used by banks, merchants and other financial institutions as they provided precise, clear and quality output, and prevented any fraudulent action such as alteration of the amount on the cheque.
