This has to be one of the strangest-looking typewriters ever made since the 1920s, though beautiful in its own way. I brought it back with me from the UK.
I've managed to fix all of the problems, see my linked blog post for the details.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
