1904 Kanzler 1b Serial # 1843 1904 Kanzler 1b typewriter, Serial # 1843 Maxim Suravegin's 1904 Kanzler 1b typewriter. 2020-01-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Maxim Suravegin: 1904 Kanzler 1b Serial # 1843 The Kanzler is the most 'German' typewriter ever produced in Germany. Not only the sturdy looks are German, but also the unique combination of swing and thrust action of this machine, and the fact that it only had 11 type bars to print a total of 88 characters.

The Kanzler was designed by Paul Gruetzmann, who wished to produce a machine that was not only more stable than other typewriters, but also faster. Once the Kanzler was on the market, the company claimed that a speed of 20 characters per second (1200 per minute, or about 200 words per minute) was technically possible.
