The TI-501 is still the synonym of a very cheap basic calculator. Selling price in the year 2001 was around USD 3.00. If you search a somewhat larger calculator you would find it with the TI-503SV.

Don't miss the first TI-501 introduced already in 1982.

We recently discovered that an identical calculator was sold in Europe as TI-501SV.
