The Typewriter Database 1938 WAG Standard Serial # 669146 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Vlastimil Novak: 1938 WAG Standard Serial # 669146 The WAG - Continental in disguise! WAG is German acronym for Wanderer Akciová Společnost (Wanderer joint stock company). The only real distinction is a different front panel. Otherwise it is a 1938 Continental. Front part of the frame is made from aluminum. The carriage it is equipped with double return levers and carriage releases.
I can't deliver trustworthy info about big question: Why? Maybe it was caused by atmosphere in pre-war Czechoslovakia and this is just attempt to disguise its German origins. But this is just assumption.
The machine itself... There are some places with bad rust, but it haven't written much pages in its time. Platen is hard as rock, therefore this is a loud one, but it is writing very good.
