Just pulled this out of my attic. It has been in my family since before I was born. It bears the Navy inscription U.S.N.X -2128 on the back. I don't have info on it beyond that except that my father was Navy during the Korean War and worked at both the Philadelphia Navy Yard and New York Shipyard for about 8 years after returning home. it has very smooth action, the keys feel weighted and balanced if that makes sense to you aficionados? Everything seems to work as it should and functions effortlessly. I remember using it as a child to complete homework during the late '60s early '70s. That's about it, hoping someone can provide more info?
