Nice youngtimer in mint conditions with a rare and very pleasant script typeface. Metal heart in a plastic suit. Not bad, solid machine.
Typeface: Ro65 Script 12CPI
I'm not sure who was the original manufacturer, sources in the web appoint it to Nakajima.
It was sold under Privileg, a trademark of the former Quelle International mail order company. You'll find the same model under brands like Japy, Hermes and Adler, too. It is a product of the beginning globalization and the shrinking typewriter market in the 1970ies.
The serial number seems to be kind of a joke. It's the only number besides the order number printed on a decal and not stamped into the body as usual.

Collector with typewriter virus living in Austria. Fourty years ago typewriters were only standard office equipment for me. I was really glad to get my first but simple word processors in the early Eighties with delete, copy/paste and whatever wonderful functions. This fascination is over. Now I have returned to real mechanics.
