GEORGE BUSH Presidential "Matchbook" Calculator. White coated "matchbook", 2½x2. Printed on front in gold is the presidential seal with "HMX-1" at bottom and "George Bush" beneath it. The verso, also printed in gold, pictures the presidential helicopter in front of the White House and the caption: "PRESIDENTIAL HELICOPTER SQUADRON-1". Inside is a screen embedded in the area of the plastic "matches". The calculator is on verso of the front cover, above the matches. The calculator operates by battery which does not appear to be included. In white box, 3x2½x1, no imprint. It contains a small sheet of the calculator's instructions. George Bush (1924-2018), was Ronald Reagan's Vice President (1981-1989) before serving as 41st U.S. President (1989-1993), the first incumbent Vice President to be elected President since 1836. He oversaw a largely successful foreign policy, including the first Gulf War against Iraq, Operation Desert Storm, and the 1989 invasion of Panama to depose General Manuel Noriega. But he wasn't re-elected largely due to shortcomings in his domestic policy, including a tax raise in 1990 after a campaign promise - the famous "Read my lips: No - new - taxes" speech - not to raise them. His son, George W. Bush, became 43rd president in 2001 and served two terms. Fine condition.
