The Typewriter Database 1924 Mignon No.4 Serial # 239184 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Justin De Mello: 1924 Mignon No.4 Serial # 239184 Had to have one of these. This Mignon No. 4 works but it is slightly offset on where you place the pointer on the index card. I figured out how to realign the vertical positioning but the horizontal row placement is slightly offset. I'm working on this problem but it does type. Will type even better when I get a new ribbon for it. If anyone knows how to adjust horizontal alignment, and cares to share thoughts, please let me know.

I fell in love with typewriters when I was 13. I'm retired now. My first was a Corona #3 which I got free from a neighbor. Decades pass, life happened, and I lost interest. Then a few years back as a retiree I renewed my interest which is a bit of a happy obsession now. However, it's not just typewriters that captivate me; I love all types of old office equipment, too. I have a Dalton adding machine (which I've restored), several different working antique check writers, a Dictaphone, antique steno machine, business card press, postage stamp scale. I have a well equipped antique office that is spilling into all parts of my home. Most items are from the Machine Age: 1880's into the 1930's. Still, typewriters are complex and amazing pieces of machinery that I'm always drawn to.
