That is gorgeous. I wish they'd added the two extra keys in the United States earlier. I think it improves the appearance of an already spectacularly-good-looking typewriter. :D
Indeed these two additional buttons make the typewriter look complete.
Very nice typewriters. The burgundy one is fabulous.
Somehow that colour makes a significant difference. Not that the black one looks bad though :)
That's a fine model that I haven't found yet in the wild. I'm still resisting the ebay route. I'm glad you've found such nice ones and are able to take care of them.
I would guess that you have much better chance to find one of these in good nick in the States that we (on the other side of the pond) do.
I have a '36 flat-top Standard model and it's a beautiful machine to look at. Typing-wise, it's a little rough, but that's part of its charm. Mine has the glossy black paint job. It's overall design looks to me like a cross between George Gershwin's piano and a Depression-era Ford sedan. Just wonderful. Congrats on a nice typewriter.
Thank you. Yes - the piano analogy is spot on. And I'm glad you subscribe to my "two (substitute any number here) as one" ideology here... ;)
