Despite she is and old lady, exhudes technological modernism. Let's take a look:
It is a complete "visible" typewriter, with a very light shift (it is not "carriage shift", as many other typewriters in the first decades of the XX century, just "basket shift")
The basket shift raises the segment, as strange at it looks (usually the shift makes the segment go down in order to write capital letters.
It has a BackSpace key (the older Model 2 L.C. Smiths lacks the backspace key).
I guess it could be a # 1 (I see no # 1 in the Database), what after I receive the typewriter could see is not. Clearly it is a Model 2.
Sometimes you have just one feeble picture in the website to decide the operation, and if you ask for other pictures (as I've done recently with a Mercedes Prima portable) another buyer can be quicker and braver than you are and bring home (HIS home) the offered typewriter.
You can not always win.
