August 13, 1972 - 'Moneymatic' demonstration
Updated: Tuesday, August 13 2013, 09:14 AM EDT
On this day in our history back in 1972, Marine Midland bank opened up a new branch in downtown Albany.
It came with a new, electronic machine they called Moneymatic: an ATM.
We got a demonstration of how it worked.
The Moneymatic required a six-digit code number for the transaction.
If you typed the wrong number in 3 times in a row, it would swallow up your Marine Midland Master Charge card.
