1912 Ideal A4 Serial # 95096 1912 Ideal A4 typewriter, Serial # 95096 Sebastian Kleinschmidt's 1912 Ideal A4 typewriter. 2020-09-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sebastian Kleinschmidt: 1912 Ideal A4 Serial # 95096 Just got this Ideal A4 from 1912 (serial number 95096) today (29th August 2020). It is in a bad shape aesthetically and has a lot of rust on the cast body but the mechanics seem to work fine (well, there is rust and dust and grime there, which impede it a bot but should work perfectly once it is cleaned).

I'm a new (started in May 2020) typewriter collector from Germany and interested in various kinds of brands and types from pre- and post-WW2. I particularly like portables, my favourite typewriter being the Erika 5.
