I had to check Richard Polt's site after looking up the serial number. It looks exactly like a two-tone green Portable #2. I seem to get lucky with these semi-rare models that I get without realizing it....

It really needs a cleaning, but it types pretty well. Only issue is that the question mark typeslug is missing. Almost seems like it's cut off. Luckily, I think it's an easy fix to get another typebar off a crappy #2 and replace it.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
