Pushing the key for a particular character causes the entire round keyboard to swivel to the position for that character to be typed. The small lever at about the 10 o'clock position of the keyboard shifts between the two characters on a key. This is a Model 3. Earlier versions had the name cast in the base. Serial number indicates machine was made 1903-04. Factory (shared with related company, Thompson Water Meter) still stands on Washington Street in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn, NY.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.
Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
