190X Barlock Columbia Barlock 10 Serial # 86119 190X Barlock Columbia Barlock 10 typewriter, Serial # 86119 Jack B's 190X Barlock Columbia Barlock 10 typewriter. 2015-05-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 190X Barlock Columbia Barlock 10 Serial # 86119 Wow... not the type of typewriter I usually buy. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this sitting in the sun in an antique market. The dealer must have had it a while, because it didn't take long to negotiate the $400 asking price to $250, which I took. Good deal?

It really wants to work but still needs a little help advancing. Aside from that, there is a lot of general rust and the arm cast on the carriage end that holds the carriage return and carriage release has snapped. Paint is in decent shape.

It's a genius and simple design that deserved better success than it got. The double keyboard probably didn't encourage buyers much...

I'll get more pictures later this week.
