|From Koln, Germany or anglicized: Cologne.|
I've been waiting on this since July 24!
|Packed with german newspapers and peanuts|
|Underneath all that lay our prize,|
simply marked "ICO"
|I took it from the box and it was much lighter|
in weight than i expected. And good thing: no
sound at all means no loose moving parts!
|Box in good shape - latch and key work!|
And it was certainly cleaned for me
|Talk about good packing! this was perfect. |
She finally emerged!
|Behold, the sexiness! This machine was cleaned and repaired before it came to me.|
Serial # 4733 which puts it at 1933
|Italian keyboard, even though it came from Germany. I thought it gave this machine even more authenticity to be in its native language. Keys are in good shape. Sorry for the shit pics - used the dumb iphone.|
|shiny happy typeface - reminds me of how my baby's smile lights up the room|
|So nice i took 2 pictures.|
|Interesting that the numbers are the secondary function so you have to actually hit |
"Mauiscole" er, Shift to access the numbers. Also notable is that the period is also secondary but the comma is primary.
This typewriter also features an exclamation point! I guess that's expected since there's probably lots of stuff in Italy worthy of exclamation! Lets see... back then there was sophia loren, claudia cardinale... i once saw a photo of ornela muti looking pretty good but then i saw some photos where i just thought she was alright. I am probably missing a bunch from the 50s. But hottest italian of all time has to be Monica Bellucci!!! She's just ridiculous.
|Everything functions wonderfully as it was promised!|
|Damn Italians have to make everything so dang beautiful. |
I wish i had David 9.ai's Lytro but then that would be copying him too much:
Much better photography for sure though
|i am shamefully inept at typing on this italian layout but i certainly will be practicing! :) Thanks for reading and sharing my joy!|
