Very kindly given to me at the Chestnut Ridge Typewriter Museum gathering in October of 2013 by Will Davis who has written a good article about it I have added the link for. It's not a good typer at all, but I do like the typeface and as far as we know this machine is unique (read Will's article). It was made in Italy.
I have since found a second one in person and also saw a third one on craigslist in Ohio. This machine is no longer unique.
