The Typewriter Database 1969 Facit 1820 Serial # 617 0851 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1969 Facit 1820 Serial # 617 0851 Yeah, it’s big.

It has a system to change between a two-color fabric ribbon and carbon ribbon at the touch of a switch. The mechanism looks similar to other cloth/carbon systems I have seen.

Whoever discarded this cut off the power cord close to the body---why?

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.
