Gütezeichen: Very good quality (S 37/287/0000)
I sold this a while ago before it ever made it to my blog…I am having second thoughts now. I do recall the reason why I sold it was because I couldn't adjust to the keyboard (and because I really wanted to enjoy using it, it was just frustrating). Switching Y and Z is easier to do that the comma and period, I found. But as I have used more layouts over the past year I've gotten much better handling them.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
