The seller noted: "I purchased this from a widow decades ago. Her husband had lost his right hand in the war and this was his typewriter. As shown in the pictures, some of the right side of the keyboard letter keys are extended for easier reach by the left hand." Typing with the left hand is in fact pretty easy on this keyboard--the raised tab and right shift keys are a stroke of genius--and I think I would be able to master the keyboard layout given two weeks' practice. I haven't been able to find an example of this layout anywhere else. The typewriter came with a Xerox copy of a manually drawn diagram of the keyboard layout, with UOEA marked as the home row.
I purchased this typewriter and gave it as a gift to a deserving recipient.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Always learning!
