Dollar Calculators - Gavado Brand

This is a nice little calculator for a dollar. The display cover, which rotates to a position behind the calculator to form small stand, is spring loaded, and slowly opens when the release is depressed.

I've used calculators like this one in the past (also purchased for a dollar), and have had good experience with them. This is a good little calculator to leave in a desk drawer.

Gavado GA256 calculator.

Case back (left), case front and electronics (right).

Case exterior is silver spray paint over black plastic. Interior case surfaces were generally smooth. The display was better supported than most calculators, and the cover provides additional protection. Soldering was a little less than optimal, but still very serviceable.
