1946 Rheinmetall KsT

Serial #259738

Rust Bucket: Reloaded.

This typewriter is in worse condition than expected. Frozen with rust, but somehow the logos have survived. What has suffered the wrath of corrosion is the serial number. I´ve had to reconstruct it with epigraphical tools (i.e. charcoal and paper).

I hope Alberto can deal with this one. If the portables are as good as the big ones, Rheinmetall made truly competent typewriters.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.

What an oversized carriage.

Briken drawband. It´s that wriggly worm on the right, crawling out from under the typewriter.
