Much sought after Oliver No. 10, this model was mostly intended for the English and French market, this particularly one was meant for the French market given the text. Nice condition, although of course there are some traces of wear accumulated over the past 100 years, everything moves and the bell works. The ink ribbon has of course dried out.
What makes this machine special is, contrary to most typewriters, that the strike arms come from the side. Each arm has 3 characters, the preference could be set by pressing the Cap key
See pictures, these are part of the description.
