This typewriter has an unusual keyboard: engineering? architecture? programming?
For a while it was used in a TV station, but I don't think that's the intended use of the keyboard. (Why would they need Ï?)
The typeface is Modern Pica.
While I don't love the styling of this typewriter, it has an incredibly smooth, easy, and precise action. The typing with a cloth ribbon is almost as crisp as if you were using a carbon ribbon.
This machine is currently serving as a public typewriter in my office building.
