Klein Adler - Typewriter

Description
Klein Adler - Typewriter
Germany - 1900-1909 - Fair condition - heavily used & with possibly minor parts missing

Beautiful Adler typewriter. Everything moves (although the coil could use some grease for smoother operation) and the ribbon is of course dry. Very nice lettering.
The special thing about this machine is the construction of the hammers which are placed in a horizontal section and in a curve, moving from front to back within that section.

The machine does show some traces of wear which are of course all depicted (the pictures are part of the description). This is only normal given its age of more than 100 years. The left front foot is missing, but the machine still stands stable. This is easy to solve.

All in all a very nice object.

Weight 6750 grams.
