Thrust action type slugs encased in this German made typewriter. The chrome outlining on the spool covers makes this typewriter oh-so-handsome.

8/2/14 - I just found the serial number on the underside of the type comb. The numbers aren't stamped on very well, but I'm guessing it to be "4-731869" dating it to 1948. Not sure what the prefix "4" is for, maybe it's for the color?

Has a second serial number: B4010/1020/R on the rail near the escapement. Not sure what it means either!
