from a junk dealer’s yard sale; needs cleaning, for sure; probably a very good typer eventually

pica roman type. You'll see a sample when I do.

So should this be an 88 or a Secretarial?

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.
