1925 Continental Standard Serial # 309390 1925 Continental Standard typewriter, Serial # 309390 Vlastimil Novak's 1925 Continental Standard typewriter. 2023-06-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Vlastimil Novak: 1925 Continental Standard Serial # 309390 Continental standard from 1925. It is using 16 mm ribbon and is in good shape, only needed a few adjustments and new feet. Bought as a gift. Cleaned with my special lady. She is getting to know her stuff about typewriters! The keyboard is Czech, someone wanted to change ö for ů and vice versa, so Ö typebar number 39 is bent to the other side and placed next to typebar 2. Funny solution. Otherwise, really nice piece.

I am a passionate amateur mechanic from the Czech Republic, and I have always mesmerized by the complexity of typewriters since my childhood. The first one (Zeta 1501) was just a toy to me in the beginning, but by every year I got older I got also better at understanding how it is working and how to disassemble it and assemble it again. The second one was Ideal DZ33 which started my love for antique machines with all the chrome and glass keys.
My machines range from mint ones through a majority of well-used machines to piles of rust that I have repaired to be typewriters again which is a lot of fun for me.
I am quite obsessed with the beauty and technical genius of standard Continentals. I love how they were producing one model of a typewriter from 1904 to the '50s with constant changes in design and my goal is to collect every decal and every major variation of them.
