Hybrid between typewriter and printer. I bought it in early 1984 and used it many years as typewriter/printer to go. It is equipped with an RS 232 interface and so I could connect it also to my first Commodore, Atari etc. "personal computers". The dot matrix gives an acceptable typeface much better than that of comparable commercial printers of those times. It could be operated either with thermal paper or with a carbon ribbon cassette and normal print paper.
Now I have switched it on after 25+ years and it works as well as coming out of the box.

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.
