1937 Continental Silenta Serial # 722816 1937 Continental Silenta typewriter, Serial # 722816 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 1937 Continental Silenta typewriter. 2018-12-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1937 Continental Silenta Serial # 722816 Massive typewriter, as "silent" at a silent typewriter can be (that means "not so silent").
Looks like a Tiger tank, and is heavy as one (or so).
No rust at all (usual when you are lucky enough to find a typewriter inside its original wooden box and with the original operative key).
The chrome parts look brand new (that is a statement of german quality eighty years ago).
The keyboard is also the german QWERTZ.
Great find at $120.
