The Typewriter Database 1908 Stoewer 4 Serial # 9809 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sergei Viktorovich: 1908 Stoewer 4 Serial # 9809 This typewriter and another - Continental Standard - were in the cellar of potatoes for many years.
One day the owner of the cellar, potatoes and typewriters decided to get rid of the nuisance "scrap" and put both typewriters for sale at a price of 500 rubles (about $ 8).

My friend was looking for parts for his Continental and I "threw" it is an advertisement for the sale of it. A friend was satisfied with received Continental and I traded this Stoewer in exchange for a boring Mercedes Prima.

Stoewer remained good, but looked terrible.
The paint peeled off in places, one leg was lost, rubber shaft was cracked, a spring ratchet in step-mechanism was broken down.
Currently typewriter repainted and brought into a usable state. Special attention is attracted to "decal" on the shields. This is not the classic decals - it's a stamped metal. All inscriptions and ornaments made in relief. Thus, the background is painted with black paint, and the letters and patterns are stripped down to the metal.

As I understand it, this typewriter is not equipped with automatic reverse tape. To change the rewinding direction, you must manually move the rod with conical gears.

Originally, it was set on cursive Latin script. Some letters have been lost, and I don`t need Latin. So I decided to change the layout of the Latin to Cyrillic, what I'm going to do in the near future.

Hi!
I'm Sergei, I was made in Russia)))))))
I wouldn't call myself a hunter - I just love typewriters, use them and collect some of them.
Many of it comes and goes out, solds to someone else, and others who "gets" me, remains)
I can't tell where I've developed a passion for typewriters. It seems that I was born with it. At least for as long as I can remember, I have always loved it. The first machine I bought in 2008. It was our, Soviet "Lyubava", a copy of "Erika". Before it, I've seen typeriters only on pictures)
