The Typewriter Database 190X Fay-Sholes Fay-Sho 4 Serial # 4817 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 190X Fay-Sholes Fay-Sho 4 Serial # 4817 This is the famous "bronze temple" design.

When I got it, it had been painted over with flaking black paint. I couldn't resist removing that paint, and I'm glad that I did.

You may not know that the Remington-Sholes / Fay-Sholes typewriters are basket shifted. The typebasket slides horizontally under the carriage.
