Finally found one of my dream machines, a Halda. Purchased near Hillsville, VA for about $45. It's in shoddy shape, one ribbon spool is a bastardized Royal standard spool, one margin is now supported by a toothpick wedged in there, and it feels fairly loose and worn out. A stub of a torn check from October 2003 found inside the machine suggests it may have seen heavy use even recently.
It's snappy and quick, and with a currency symbol for Bolivars we can see it was most likely first sold in Venezuela. It has keys for Spanish and perhaps a few other European words as well.
