Flakey in operation when I got it, it was repaired by a jeweler welding the escapement spindle. $10.50 cost added in for a total of $23. Works fine now. Script typeface.

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.
