The Typewriter Database 1927 Bing 2 Serial # 1634725 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1927 Bing 2 Serial # 1634725 Although produced by Bing Werke, a Nuremberg-based toy company, the Bing No. 2 isn't a toy but a "lehrmittelschreibmaschine," an educational tool, meant to cater to the needs of students. Produced in 1927, the tin-and-aluminum Bing No. 2 is said to be indexical of the harsh economic conditions of Depression-era Germany. This particular machine is no longer in my collection, it is now safely stabled in Cambridge Typewriter (Tom Furrier's collection).
