I've been looking for a Halda for a while and pulled the trigger the moment I saw this one for sale. A beautiful machine, with a distinctive red horizontal strip and a simple M for margin release. This machine types quite well. The carriage return lever refuses to engage, but I'll sort that out. In terrific cosmetic shape with just a couple of spots that are threatening to rust. The kerning seems a little off, too, but after servicing it should type quite well.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
