Hammond Multiplex Typewriter
This Amazing machine is Manufactured after 1913 under the Serial 16XXXX found on its left back corner
This Typewriter Belonged to a lady who passed all her typewriters to us as she worked as a Lawyer/University Instructor/Writer & Researcher in Sheffield.
What makes it Important is the fact that all mechanics are excellent (other than the Shields - we took out) and it was now deeply cleaned for a free movement from being kept away for the last 50 Years.
Why Buy this Typewriter?
- Professionally Cleaned and in Our own way as we take it all out ( See Pictures please)
- Platen and Rollers are Excellent.
- Still has the Decals in their Excellent Condition on its front.
. No Missing Keys or Broken ones and Types from two sides.
Deeply cleaned to look good.
We fully Dismantle the Typewriter for a deep clean. PLease See Pictures.
Typewriter have age and usage signs all over.
minor Paint Imperfections on the front Metal parts like the Back Space and Key Rings.
From Experience, Typewriter looks to be used in a pure professional medium but age signs will appear if we like it or not.
Appreciate zooming all pictures for better evaluation of its cosmetic condition.
You Can Type on it. But, we Took the Shields (Vibrator Equivalent in Modern Typewriters) of it so it will not show what you are Typing and We are not Selling for Daily Typing but only As a Display/Prop , Occasional Typing for fun, or for collection.
Do not expect to smoothly type for long hours on it.
