A fully functional and beautiful ORGA PRIVAT typewriter model 1 made in 1924. This machine's mechanics work incredibly smoothly and all keys are still functional. The paint of both case and typewriter is original, very well preserved and still quite shiny.
*TYPEFACE: QWERTZ keyboard, 10cpi Pica typeface
*COSMETICS: This typewriter is in excellent condition - minor age signs (blemishes, scratches). All the glass keys are clear, shiny and clean. The chrome plated metal parts have been cleaned. Due to the exceptional glossiness of the enamel paint, a clear reflection can be seen on the typewriter surfaces. The machine is finished off with a protective, museum-quality wax in order to protect the paint from oxidation, dirt, scratches and fingerprints.
*MECHANICS: As with all our restored typewriters - this one is in outstanding mechanical condition. As part of our restoration process this typewriter has received a new platen rubber, new rubber key rest, and of course - new ink. It is ready to withstand many hours of smooth typing.
*CASE: The case is in great condition. A beautiful, metal case and a wooden plank on the bottom. Cleaned and polished, looks like new. It works great - including the automatic lock on the front.
*OUR RECOMMENDATION: We always recommend antique typewriters like this one for typing, although we do not recommend heavy typing. This typewriter has new platen rubber - for better paper grip and to reduce noise during typing, thus it is good for light typing.
All our typewriters are delivered to you ready to start typing. All machines have an installed new ink ribbon which should last at least 500 A4 pages.
