A friend of mine likes to go to antique stores and snapped a picture of this and asked if I wanted it. It was a really good price. Apparently based on the fact that it wasn't working. But it was. Turned out it was just the carriage lock engaged and some gummy type arms. Has the text "Kriegsaufmachung, g├╝te unverandert" on the front, meaning "War model, quality unchanged" on the front.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
