The Baby British Empire Typewriter
Light Weight & Stripped out version of these portable machines.
Serial from 268XX from late 1939
What makes it Special?
The Typewriter, and while cleaning, we noticed that all the main body is made of Black Metal and not Silver Coloured metal.
Model was used in the World war 2 for sure as it is light and ultra portable.
This Deluxe Model has the RED Margin Release on the left plus the Line spacing lever was added as it used to be pinch line spacing or even only using the knobs for a new line.
What we love about it is the Red Back Space.
Very dark Army Grey
Typewriter was professionally cleaned.
Considerably Mint condition for age and in comparison to other machines we have from same model or in the marker.
Age signs will show on the paint as these have been used Before and After WW2.
All Checked and cleared to Type.
It will normally type but it is surely not ready for long hours of typing. Prints are never perfect compared to a professional machine from 1950 and beyond.
This Typewriter Model is Designed with Limited Features as there is only one colour, One sided Vibrator Ribbon Holder, simple Cap lock, small platen, and ultra thin.
Lid Handle is like new.
All pins for the lid are available and in excellent condition,
Age signs all around the outer side due to age.
Considerably excellent for age.
New Black Ribbon Fitted
