The Typewriter Database 1928 Unitype 6 Serial # 103863 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1928 Unitype 6 Serial # 103863 A rebranded Torpedo 6. Take a close look at the pictures. The black enamel is unblemished (it reflects the typewriter keys). German technical perfection at its best. Even the rubber feet look like new in this barn find typewriter (just blow the dust, no more than this simple task, and it was as ready to the photo session as Veroushka in Blow Up).
There are four carriage sizes available, and is clearly shown in the decals how to displace the carriage (to extreme lefthand side to replace the carriage to 17 1/2 and 24 1/2 carriages; to extreme righthand side to replace with 9 1/2 and 12 carriages).
The typewriter is basket shift, incredibly light to change to capitol letters and symbols.
There is nearly zero information about this typewriter in the www. Just a note in Mr. Robert Messenger wonderful webpage (and about Unitype portables, no full size Unitypes like this one).
