I bought this typewriter from a German collector (he has a German keyboard) because I thought it was too strange to have a radio and a typewriter.
The old owner has attached a tag with the date 1970 and I think he did some research to put the exact date.
I thought that the radio did not work after years but it was enough to put a 9-volt battery and started broadcasting in AM.
It has some white keys and other yellow ones, almost brown, I think it's a defect of the plastic used at the time to manufacture itasti that was poor.
It's a nice typewriter and if the date on the tag is right it's also my year of birth so what more do you want?
