AEG - Typewriter

Description
AEG - Typewriter
Germany - 1920-1929 - Good condition - used with small signs of aging & blemishes

This antique typewriter was invented in 1904 by Friedrich von Hefner-Alteneck.
Special is the absence of a keyboard, instead it has an index pointer. This points at a letter and you strike it with the right button.
The machine is still original and comes with the cover. This cover is complete but could benefit from a renovation.
It still works. I tried it out and typed a short sentence (see pictures). All mechanical functions seem to work well.
A lot of pictures have been added, taken from all sides, so the condition of the machine can be examined properly.
The pictures are part of the description.

The typewriter will be properly packaged for shipping by registered and insured mail with track & trace code.
