LC-844WA_PCB.jpg (44992 Byte)You are familiar with this calculator? The housing seems to be similar to the TI-1750. Compare both calculators yourself. The original design of the "basic" Toshiba calculators traces back to the LC-830.

LC-844WA_BAT.jpg (27107 Byte)If we discover the internal construction of the LC-844WA we feel immediately familiar with it. The printed circuit board is once again manufactured by Sansuy and even the battery holder is well known.

Don't miss the earlier LC-854WA and the later LC-859WA. Canon used the Toshiba T3939S single-chip calculator circuit in the LC-34T, too.
