1912 Mignon 2 Serial # 34231 1912 Mignon 2 typewriter, Serial # 34231 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 1912 Mignon 2 typewriter. 2016-04-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1912 Mignon 2 Serial # 34231 Just arrived, dismantled, cleaned, and put together.
The way the printer element moves following the stylus is sweet as a technological dance.
Furthermore, this delicate single element predates more than half a century the well known IBM selectric writing ball (or "golf ball"), and equals the ease of replacement.
The card containing the letters, numbers and particular writing signs is easy to replace too, in order to match the printer element you are using.
Taking advantage of my today's work with this typewriter, I've took some photographs I hope will be useful for other Mignon owners.
