1921 The Empire 1 Serial # 40692 1921 The Empire 1 typewriter, Serial # 40692 Carl H's 1921 The Empire 1 typewriter. 2017-10-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1921 The Empire 1 Serial # 40692 I think export models were only called Empire instead of "The Empire". Machine was used in Switzerland but has an QWERTY keyboard and √§, √∂, √ľ.
Condition is awful, it is not woking, one ribbon spool is missing, but I got it for nearly nothing.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
