1960 Everlux Portable Serial # C-070316 1960 Everlux Portable typewriter, Serial # C-070316 Carl H's 1960 Everlux Portable typewriter. 2018-01-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1960 Everlux Portable Serial # C-070316 German keyboard
Pica typeface

Uncommon version, according to Dingwerth built by Everest, but this is clearly an Antares rebrand. Strange is only the C prefix. All other Antares Domus have a D prefix. It also misses the typical three or four digit long suffix. Serial number D-070938-6050 was sold in 1960, so this is a 1960 machine too. (See link, we should add this known number on the Antares serial number page)

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
