A fully functional and beautiful German Torpedo 18s typewriter from 1960, in very beautiful, uncommon chocolate/cream duotone color.
*TYPEFACE: QWERTZ German-English keyboard, 10cpi Pica typeface. It has the letter "Y" in a different place than QWERTY keyabords.
*COSMETICS: This typewriter is in excellent condition - minor age signs (blemishes, paint scratches). All the glass keys are clear, shiny and clean. The chrome plated metal parts have been cleaned. 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 serviced typewriters - this one is in outstanding mechanical condition. As part of our restoration process this typewriter has received a new key rest and new ink and new felt pads. It is ready to withstand many hours of smooth typing. It is a heavy, desktop writer - about 8kg.
*CASE: Comes with textile case with 2 zippers, good vintage condition.
*OUR RECOMMENDATION: We always recommend antique typewriters like this one for typing, although we do not recommend heavy typing. This typewriter has new ink. All machines have an installed new ink ribbon which should last at least 500 A4 pages.
Our typewriters include a 1 year warranty.
