I first saw this in a very overpriced boutique 'retro' store, where I was repelled by the unreasonable price tag - the typewriter is far from being in working condition. The store ended up closing and I eventually scored this really cheaply at the liquidating auction.
It has a long, long road to recovery ahead of it - the carriage rails appear to be rusted together. It's also clogged with grime which isn't too surprising as it lacks a case. The thrust-action typebars are super cool though, so this typewriter's restoration will be a long-term labour of love.
