*TYPEFACE: Typeface (font) - Pica, 10cpi. The typeface of this typewriter is common Pica and it has a German-Enlish QWERTZ keyboard (Y key has a difference place on the keyboard)
*COSMETICS: This typewriter is in great condition. There are 3 tiny paint scratches in various spots (front of keyboard, and both sides where the carriage advances on the rails). These minor imperfections are caused by normal use of the machine. Other than this, paint is in great shape with a smooth, very shiny finish. The chrome plated metal parts look great. The machine is finished off with a protective, museum-quality wax in order to protect the paint from oxidation, dirt, scratches and fingerprints.
