Setright's first attempt at a machine with an audit capability - the SMC (or 'Ordit') was conventionally operated using a handle but with three selector keys for the fare value mimicking the Almex A.  The machine had a paper audit strip and was also available apparently with magnetic casette capability for use on a data transcriber or alternatively a computer.  Ticket rolls were TIM size but on thicker paper.  One is illustrated in the famous 'Bus & Coach' guide of fare collection and ticket-issuing machines of May 1963.  Probably demonstrated widely but not aware the machine entered production.  I have the original prototype - 1000 - but at least two others were sold at LOTS some years ago.  Where are they now?
