    As American business expanded in the second half of the 19th century, and cash transactions replaced barter, shopkeepers took steps to secure their money. It was hard to keep clerks from pocketing some of the cash they received. Mechanical cash registers improved steadily over the years, with the addition of features like an adding mechanism for individual sales (the first cash registers only recorded total amounts received); printed receipts;  machines with several drawers, one for each clerk in a department store; and, in a few high priced machines, automatic change making.
