This is the famous "bronze temple" design.
When I got it, it had been painted over with flaking black paint. I couldn't resist removing that paint, and I'm glad that I did.
You may not know that the Remington-Sholes / Fay-Sholes typewriters are basket shifted. The typebasket slides horizontally under the carriage.
