This is the first machine of this model in the database. I know that Herman Price has or had one as well.
It's very similar to a model 21, except that it has big side panels and back that fully enclose the machine, making it quite bulky. But inside you have essentially a Remington 12.
The keyboard has only upper case letters but also symbols and units.
Pictures are before cleaning and restoration, obviously.
Dating is uncertain but it's probably the 1920s or 1930s.
This machine features the standard Wahl mechanism to perform additions/subtractions.
UPDATE: As of 2020-01-27, the machine is now restored! I hope to post more about the restoration later.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
