An early example of the make, with scientific keyboard (DIHATENSOR), and several diferences with later models, as the following ones:
nickel plated space bar
celluloid placement ruler above the platen
small paper advance lever
tiger stripped shield (not my first typewriter onamented with tiger stripes, perhaps it was a common fashion at the end of the XIX century)
Despite the printing roller inking, and the good operation of the typewriter, I am sure I'll need a replacement roller in order to show you a typeface specimen sample.
This roller is just one of the several methods invented (some of them slightly on the weird side) to print over paper. Is easily to see why, at last, the ribbon prevails over all of them.
And that's all, enjoy the typewriter as much as I do.
