Stock Ticker Replicas & Reproductions


Over the past century, several companies have produced replica tickertape machines in all shapes and sizes.  Most were sold as novelty items like clocks, ashtrays, bookends, etc.  However, today many unsuspecting buyers and sellers can't tell the difference between replicas and the real thing.   Replicas often came with glass domes, paper tape, and Edison plaques, but usually they were small and had no moving parts.  Check out this picture comparing the size of an original ticker to a replica and a 2-liter of soda.

Besides being worded differently, the plaques on ticker replicas were affixed with two nails, verses the real tickers which used four screws.
