The Typewriter Database 1909 Helios Helios Serial # 4455 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Maxim Suravegin: 1909 Helios Helios Serial # 4455 The Helios is an odd little machine with a two row keyboard with only 20 keys to produce a full character set of 80 characters. Three different shift keys on the left side of the keyboard opened the way to all these characters.

The Helios was first introduced in 1908 by Justin Bamberger in Munich. In 1909 production was taken up by the Kanzler typewriter factory in Berlin, that set up the Helios company for this machine. When both Kanzler and Helios dissolved, production was resumed by the Ney company in 1914.
