197X ABC (Messa) 2000 Serial # 1107135 197X ABC (Messa) 2000 typewriter, Serial # 1107135 Dimitris Nikou's 197X ABC (Messa) 2000 typewriter. 2022-07-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dimitris Nikou: 197X ABC (Messa) 2000 Serial # 1107135 Good looking ABC 2000 portable typewriter with Greek typeface made in Portugal by Messa. Found at a flea market very dirty (as usual). The carriage looks "stuck" in a semi-shifted position and I cannot type capitals but only lowercase and also these not properly. Other than that, the machine is ok and I really like its color combination. What impressed me on this one is its metal body - usually ABC typewriters from Messa that I came accross had all cheap plastic bodies. Unfortunately, I cannot find information about the correct dating of this model and its manufacture year, I can just assume that it was made during the 70's. The machine with its cover weights 5,1 Kg, Eventually I sold it to a collector that needed a non working typewriter for decoration.

Points: 964

Writer and blogger from Athens, Greece. I own a small collection of typewriters, dated from 1913 (my oldest one, a Remington Standard 10) up to the late 70's. Most of my machines are functionable and I try to repair any with problems that keeps it from typing. For me, it is important for a typewriter not just to sit on a shelve for display, but also to be able to type when I want to. On the links below you will find my blogs and social media profiles. Feel free to follow me and get in touch if you want. I am always happy to communicate :)
