Number 3

Number 4

Number 5

Number 6

Number 7

Number 8

Number 9


  1. Very nice looking typewriters. I have little room and no room for a standard office machine, but if I would have 5, 6, 7, and 9 offered locally somehow they may find their way home with me.

    The Schiedegger looks like an Adler in disguise. The case style and main keys look identical to my J4. I've also seen some Adlers on Ebay with the dark shift keys and space bar.

  2. If you take the lot, you will need another house. The first one and then the Remington (is it a n°7)?

  3. Nice Optima Elite. Did you get any serial numbers? :)
    Also, the Junior looks perfectly well preserved.

  4. Can you pre-order nos 4, 8 & 9 for me please!!? :-)

    You seem to live in the typewriter-sweet-spot of Europe!! Very envious!!

  5. Okay, you got me again, I thought you captured the Sphinx! But mark my word, you will. ( :

    The Scheidegger is a standout, I wouldn't mind owning it.

  6. Nothing rare, but they appear to be in good condition under the dust. The Continental particularly caught my eye.

  7. Those old standards are real works of industrial art - the Royal's paint and decals look pristine - but not ribbon tops. I reckon they all fall into the SwF30-40 bracket. The standards should be more but need collection so that pushes the price down. For the right price, I'd be tempted by all the older standards. Maybe keep them at the local library on long-term loan? Magic Margin's been getting away with free, off-site storage for a while :-)

  8. some nice iron there. love the blue key on the adler. And that first one is impressive.
    If you want a "mission," find me an affordable rooy to take home.
