Third revision of this venerable machine. This one has the lovely, tiny (2mm pitch) 'Diamant' typeface; note that the paper bail is marked all the way to 117 spaces.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
Living in So. Calif. USA. Bought a mint SC flattop at an estate sale for $5 some years ago, and enjoyed the tactility of typing after using computers since 1968, the punch-card era. I gave it to my mother-in-law to exercise her arthritic fingers. After she passed away last year I found it among her things. I wanted something newer, so bought an Olympia SM3. I am not a collector, but seem to have acquired more than 30 machines since March 2016, and have passed several on to family and friends, and bartered with others.
Note 'volume control' to adjust keystroke tension.
