Hebrew keyboard, British Mandate period (note the currency: ×"×/××× - short for "Erez Yisrael"/"Mil" which was the currency
used in British Mandate Palestine/EY -- Palestinian/EY Lira, each equivalent to a 1000 mils.
Serial number on the frame is: 191882.
[TWDB](https://typewriterdatabase.com/seidelnau.243.typewriter-serial-number-database) puts this serial number as
model 5, 1934. Fits the currency.
A second serial number is on an inner part: 9870/5. I think this is just
a part number; year of production for 9870 would be 1915, and british mandate was not
yet in effect, thus the currency symbols wouldn't exist yet.
'Bijou' very faint on back paper holder (up and back of platen)
Trace of logo on left and right upper cover.
The Palestine [Orient]?
Tel Aviv Jeruslaem [Haifa]?
