The serial number is placed also on many other parts of the typewriter, at least in 4 places, also here under the carriage, for example. I think it was to prevent the typewriter to be stolen.

I inherited a collection of around 400 old typewriters and calculators from my father, who collected them for 50 years.
I also have a YouTube channel featuring these typewriters.
The pictures are made by my wife who is a photographer. Her name is Milena.
This gallery is managed by her,
So if you like the pictures don't thank me but her.
