1931 Continental Standard Serial # 457582 1931 Continental Standard typewriter, Serial # 457582 Vlastimil Novak's 1931 Continental Standard typewriter. 2023-06-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Vlastimil Novak: 1931 Continental Standard Serial # 457582 I have bought and restored this 1931 Continental as a gift for my friend.
The spacebar and additional black keys are repainted. The chassis is in its original condition, only polished. The original rubber spacebar stop was missing, so this metal/rubber stop is my creation.
The writer uses a 13mm ribbon, but the spools are bigger - 16mm. I don't know anything about the originality of the spools.

The keyboard is Czech (with German letters √§, √∂, and √ľ)

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.
