American typewriter with oscillating wheel segment and visible writing
with a half-round keyboard.
With a keystroke, the wheel segment turns, until a metal pin, which is elevated through the keystroke, stops it at the correct point. By pressing the shift key, the wheel segment is lifted to the second and third key row. Then, the paper and the ink ribbon are pressed against the character from the back by means of a striker, the so-called print hammer, thereby printing the chosen character on the front of the paper.
