I am not sure of its exact weight but it is a backbreaker. From full side to side the carriage takes up 1.46m (4'10") of desk space. Apparently the exact model is a Lexikon 80EC as it has the remains of the carbon ribbon holders.

Accidental collector.
I originally bought one typewriter for personal use, but within weeks was buying more as the collecting bug crept up on me. I am mainly interested in European makes from the 50s and 60s.
