This is most likely a WW1 (1914-1918) era Meteor model 2 typewriter, serial number 3898 (front stamping behind keys) ; and 3898 H if looking from the bottom of the bottom stamping machine's serial number. I've put new feet on the schribmaschine, so at least it can stand in the case w/o rattling around. These things were supposedly made by the Saxon Knitting Machine factory in Dresden-Löbtau, Germany. It's a 3-row, non-collapsible travel typewriter. My scale says it's 10.0 LB exactly! I wasn't going to work on it, but the local typewriter repair I was going to use (Blue & Koepsell ) turned down working on it! They said "The only guy I can think of that would of worked on it (ED at Ace Bussiness Machines in Milwaukee) died 2 weeks ago. I wound up fixing the main-spring, replacing the drawstring, adding a sping at the margin stop, replacing the feed roller rubber, etc.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
