Paymaster X-550

USA, 1980’s

The Paymaster X-550 was a machine for writing cheques and was used in banks to protect against cheque fraud or alteration. Paymasters added letters and symbols in between amounts to prevent the copying or the adding of numbers. Machines like these are still used today although this model was discontinued in the 1990’s.
