Bought from a deceased estate in suburban Sydney.

Interesting keyboard - has German shift/backspace keys along with a slew of German characters, yet an English keyboard layout with pound and dollar signs, and to top it all off Spanish inverted question/exclamation marks!

Possibly the most amateur typewriter collector ever? Uni student located in Sydney, AUS. The amount of storage I have is a constant problem as I try to keep feeding my addiction...
