Abstract

In an automatic teller machine or bill depository/dispenser for a banking terminal which is equipped with a single bill stacker or cartridge for stacking bills in sequence as entered by consumers for deposit and emitting bills therefrom to consumers for dispensing, a shift register is provided for retaining at each position information relative to the individual bills in the stacker, whereby the dispensing of the bills can be controlled under this information. Referring to the figure, as the bills are entered into the machine for deposit, each of the bills is checked for its denomination, obverse/reverse status, degree of damage, etc., by the bill recognition device (BRD) and then fed into the stacker in sequence.
