This index typewriter was created with two markets in mind by Gustav Tietze AG, Leipzig. The french exports were named "Victoria", and in the german market, this typewriter was the FAMOS.
Operates as any other with circular index, turning the index (in this case by means of the wooden knob ion the back). The inking roller is on the left side The paper is fixed around the platen and for each letter you must turn the platen one space. Once the line is complete, you can advance one line the platen. Cantakerous.
