Ridiculous Remington.

This rather ordinary Remington 10 just turned up on - the seller estimates its age at 60 years and would like to get 2500 CHF for it - $2600, Au$2500.

And I thought Switzerland was safe from keychoppers.

*I don't experience this problem when writing on normal paper - but on a postcard, my text is either finished halfway through the card, or it's a few lines too long.

X. Zurich Typehunt

X. Zurich Typehunt - 22. März 2013

The lonely Hermes Baby: Still there, but degrading in condition.
While the Royal 10 is gone, its younger brother is still there - accompanied by a sailboat.
A Grammophone!
And a Calanda "Luxe" - new here. I'm tempted, but 40.- is a bit on the expensive side.
Also new - the Underwood Standard Typewriter. I never knew they had that written on them! 125.- is far too expensive for this condition, though.
The Lettera is now guarded by a terrifying skeleton with eyes glowing in radioactive green.
The Horde, now accompanied by Picasso's Guernica.
Five Electronics and three computer monitors.
