1935 Continental Standard

Serial #560719

Comes in a big Package in poor condition and in and out with lots of Dust.
I decide to giver her a hot Shower with Soap, than dry it with compressed Air and after that oil with lots of "Ballistol". To late i recognize that two
Types are missing!
All the experts tell me to buy another to repair this
not very good machine, but i don't want to destroy another for my new favorite typewriter. I get the missing types in Hamburg at an Repair-Shop, the Owner collects old Typewriter!!
The lost carriage-stripe was no problem, i took a sheet Car-Covering-fabric.
The Conti writes exact an very easy, not so fast, but with the precision of an true Buisness Typewriter

Collector of machines from 1910's to 1960's.
Mostly german typewriters.
The design is always important for me, first it must be nice,
than look if it writes well or not.
I Always get a cheap purchase of poor condition-maschines,
so i have to clean, oil, polish and repair.
Try to save the present condition, no Restauration to new-condition.
