Bought in the Netherlands. Body of the machine was bent severely on the right hand side. Did what I could to salvage the machine. It's now working smoothly (save for some minor alignment issues), but doesn't look as great as it should.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I love to read literature, and was very curious as to how the authors I love the most, physically wrote their novels. That got me into typewriters.
On this picture you can see clearly how the machine was damaged. Take a look at the shape of the casing near the tab-key and colourselector.
