One of a kind: One of the typewriters destinated to SS officers during World War II.
The typebar with the SS runes is intact.
Even the name of the SS-Hauptsturmführer who owned the typewriter is clearly engraved in the special strong box typical of every "Robust".
Furthermore, it cames with a picture of that officer in Wermacht military suit.
I was lucky enough in order to get in touch with a close relative of him, who very surprised by the findind certified the ownership.
You will understand that I do not put the photograph or identify the owner.
The typewriter is complete, pristine, and fully operative.
