Typewriter Co. Maine, USA. This early, simple index machine, uses a swinging pointer to select the characters. At the other end of the pointer is a semi-circular type element with a rubber strip attached, this strip has all of the characters molded onto it's surface. By pushing down on the metal bar, just above the nickel plated "comb", a metal plunger pushes the pliable rubber character down towards the paper. Inking was by two ink pads. An ink dropper would be used to apply more ink as required. This typewriter originally sold for $8.00.
