Fine ultraflat typewriter. For me one of the top scorers in the portable category. Only slightly behind Princess. The typeface is Elite 12CPI and shows an elegant appeal.
The machine has two serial numbers, I decided to take the one imprinted in the the carriage rail, the second one is stamped into the body and is 151887, both indicating the manufacturing date 1956. See images.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
New collector with typewriter virus living in Austria. Fourty years ago typewriters were only standard office equipment for me. I was really glad to get my first but simple word processors in the early Eighties with delete, copy/paste and whatever wonderful functions. This fascination is over. Now I have returned to real mechanics.
