The Typewriter Database 191X Bennett Pocket Model Serial # 18298 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 191X Bennett Pocket Model Serial # 18298 This typewriter was sold in Buenos Aires (you can see the name and address of the local Bennett agent in the front of the typewriter's box). How many Bennett's were sold in Argentina one century ago? No one knows, but I am pretty sure the answer is: not many.
This particular example, as long as I could determine using what the antiquarian seller (and long time owner of this Bennett) told me, was propiety of the man that is considered the first argentinian war correspondant: Mr. Roberto J. Payro.
He used this Bennett to cover the First World War in Belgium, and the typewriter has signs of have been heavily used (and lovingly cared by his owner).Today Mr. Payro is considered one of the most important script writer and novelist of argentins, and you can learn more in Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roberto_Payr%C3%B3
Despite it is a tiny machine, you can easily use as replacement a three bank portable Underwood, or a foldable Corona, and the speed of use and the results are hard to compare.
