Sighted at a local antique store. It's an impressive-looking typewriter; I didn't get to type on it. The silver bands around it are not chrome but bare aluminum masked off from the paint.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
