This is an ABC 2000 rebranded for Bundy Typewriters, a dealer in Philadelphia. It has a metal casing and ribbon cover but, unlike a similar rebrand I have (Commodore 2000), it has touch control (the knob on the left side of the keyboard. And while the Commodore was made in West Germany, this machine was made in Portugal. The machine has a tab key but the settings are preset.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.
Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
