1930 Merz 3 Serial # 42043 1930 Merz 3 typewriter, Serial # 42043 Milan Berta's 1930 Merz 3 typewriter. 2022-06-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 1930 Merz 3 Serial # 42043 I bought this interesting typewriter with the risk that the main components will be damaged, as is typical with these typewriters. Cracked segment and therefore non-functional whole typewriter. But I was lucky that the typewriter arrived in better shape than I expected. The segment has only small cracks and the machine is functional. Nevertheless, I will take care of it only as a decoration. I'm looking for spare broken rubber feet and missing ribbon nuts. Czech keyboard.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
