The Typewriter Database 1942 DM Robust Serial # 412966 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1942 DM Robust Serial # 412966 This is a typewriter from the most horrible epoch of human history. The crimes against humanity the Nazis did are a caesura in the history of humanity. This typewriter is, like the gate of Ausschwitz a memorial to never forget the cruelties of the Nazi regime and the ungraspable support by the German people.

Repainted (by previous owner). The "DM" symbol is visible through the color. As far as I know, DM were machines sold to mechanics. I thought this machines were just made for the "Wehrmacht". Typebar "5 / SS" was replaced by "5 / &". All typebars have a cross in the middle expect "5 / &", so it was replaced.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
