Swedish quality everywhere in this marvelous typewriter. The beveled glass ribbon covers (unblemished) are just a detail of finesse.
The keyboard pressure adjustment is located underneath the typewriter (I cant imagine a delicate young thirties secretary lifting this heavy machine with one hand, while she adjusts the keyboard with her other hand).
The typewriter is complete and operational (see the typeface specimen), despite some keys are not in very good condition, with severe scratches.
Very proud of this one, they are no very common where I live, and this one cames as cheap as fifteen dollars.
