1923 Presto 3 Serial # 3040 1923 Presto 3 typewriter, Serial # 3040 Lukas Klein's 1923 Presto 3 typewriter. 2024-03-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Lukas Klein: 1923 Presto 3 Serial # 3040 I bought this Presto typewriter on Ebay. It can type, the only thing I had to fix on this typewriter was a pull cord for the carriage.
The type levers are pretty rusty, but since I have never restored a typewriter before, I don't dare take this machine apart. But I am still very happy to have this rare machine in my collection

In 1913, the company Frister and Rossmann from Berlin launched the Senta typewriter and produced an identical model under the name Presto for the Dresden customer Ulrich Nordmann. The Senta No.1 and the Senta No.2 are therefore identical to the Presto No.1 and the Presto No.2. In 1921, Ulrich Nordmann decided to build his own typewriter. The Presto, which is made by Ulrich Nodmann, is known among collectors as the Presto 3.

I come from southern Germany and have been collecting historical typewriters for 10 years. I'm interested in the antique machines built before 1945. All machines built after 1945 are not used for collecting but for writing



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Presto 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Presto Serial Number page and the Presto 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
