This machine is the french version of the Blickensderfer.
The key order is:
Annotations: line 7, first symbol ist the O and the dot for No. (=number)
line 8, 9th symbol ist fr for French Franc
Typeface specimen: Sometimes the typewheel turns to much or to few, I corrected these by hand.
I visited the Blickensderfer Plant and Salesroom in 2015. Pictures in the Gallery.
Hunter: Carl H (Olivetti48)

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
