1958 Halda P

Serial #P120522

Spotted at MTE, a very late-model Halda, serial number near the end of production. Might explain why the manual has "Facit" all over it and sports the "Facit Dunce" character. The carrying case is a marvel of engineering. Machine has one large rubber foot as in most Facits.

Lots of interesting ephemera in the case, including a 1961 receipt for service and ribbon replacement and a large cardboard "visor" that inserts into the ribbon cover to hide the keyboard for touch-typing training. The manual covers the training course.

Condition: typebasket completely frozen (prolly someone WD-40'd it) and a few odd bits were lying in the case. Doesn't really look like they belong to the machine. The case key is engraved "IKA" (the case manufacturer?)
