1902 Lambert 1 Serial # 26618 1902 Lambert 1 typewriter, Serial # 26618 F N's 1902 Lambert 1 typewriter. 2015-03-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of F N: 1902 Lambert 1 Serial # 26618 This is a Lambert with a high serial number, but I still think this is a model 1, because it can write in italics. Normal serial numbering stopped at 17.000; higher numbers were used for export machines.

I bought this machine some years ago in the Netherlands from a man whose father bought it before the second world war at a flea market in Amsterdam (Waterlooplein).
