Reliable and quite noiseless typewriter, somewhat more than a portable, but not a standard yet.

It has segment shifting, supports dual-colour ribbon, has a d o u b l e spacing option and tabulator. Standard carriage could be easily interchanged with the large one (if you have it).

Came to me with a thick felt rug, probably made by the previous owner.
