This model (Mina) was first shown at the Brussels Fair in 1923.
The "Mina" is able to quickly make divisions in a completely automatic way, but not the automatic multiplication yet.
The "IXe T Mina" belongs to the family of the first machines equipped with a keyboard and an engine. This family includes the "VIIe T MISS" (9-7-12) and the "XIe T MILO" (11-9-16). This machine has an intermediate accuracy of 9-9-16 with an option for 9-9-18.
The machine's machinery has been tested by a company without the belt and it works.
The machine hasn’t been tested as we do not know how it works.
A key is missing, delivered separately (see photos).
