Description
Blickensderfer - Typewriter - 1
U.S. - 1900-1909 - Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes

Manufacturer: Blickensderfer Mfg. Co., Stamford Conn., USA

Model / year of manufacture: 7/ 1905

Serial number: 97648

System: Daisy wheel typewriter wit upper impact and double switching

Details: When striking a key, the daisy wheel would turn to the respective position and impact the roller with the chosen character (upper impact). The writing was immediately visible. The colouring was done with a small coloured roll, which the daisy wheel would pass before impact. In order to store the typewriter inside its matching little wooden case, the space could be folded back.

Special feature: The weight of the “Blickensderfer” was only 3 kg. It was handy, but robust nevertheless. Because of these advantages and due to its low price, it was one of the best-selling travel typewriters of its time.

Condition: Visual condition: See photos. Technical condition: Functional, original paint, with accessories.
