The Keystone calculators are quite rare in their use of gas-discharge displays in a pocket calculator.

The 325 came in a nice case, and with a mechanical pencil. The case is an indication of how valued such a calculator was in its day. The case does look suspiciously similar to those provided for electric shavers back in the day, though.
