I was charmed by this little machine from a distance of many thousands of kilometres on German eBay, and was lucky enough to have it at a very reasonable price. It is one of the prettiest typewriters I have the pleasure of owning, and to this it adds a very pleasant touch that is light without being insubstantial. I use it to write letters and study notes - it's been a great addition to my collection! I highly recommend trying one of these if you get the chance.
(Excuse the terrible type sample; I did it with a really tattered old ribbon and forgot to type up a better one once I'd changed it)

Possibly the most amateur typewriter collector ever? Uni student located in Sydney, AUS. The amount of storage I have is a constant problem as I try to keep feeding my addiction...
