I recently cleaned up and fixed this machine made in June 1919.

Notable features: a typebasket that tilts up and down (it's hinged in back) and a carriage that is easily removed by unscrewing two screws.

The right ribbon spool is permanently attached to the typewriter; only the left one can be removed.
