Vintage 1919/20 Hammond Multiplex portable typewriter in near if not excellent condition, good clean working condition, functional and clean with very nice case. This typewriter is over 100 years old.
The typewriter serial number is AL 210698 which dates it around 1919/20 period. Nice black paint, keyboard and graphics are very good, Made for all Nations and Tongues on center small graphic. The key board is very unusual as it appears to have characters that are Hebrew, Greek or some other language in addition to English. If you are aware of what they are please advise.
The typewriter types very well as you can see from the typing example to be just over 100 years old. The hammer strikes well leaving a good sharp imprint. I have installed a new impression strip and it has two different English shuttles in very good condition (possible Roman medium and miniature). It also has a very good shuttle shield installed and I have installed a new ribbon.
The keys strike and return and it advances as you type. Very nice ribbon covers with one being clear for visual purposes and has the original wood with metal clips ribbon spools. No rust, platen and feed roller are original and paper feed works adequately, back space is good.
All figure and cap adjustments work well as you can see from the pictures. The folding space bar and paper holder work well.
Please see typing example for typing function. The typewriter bolts to the base well. The case is solid and entirely in tact with nice hardware and purple velour in the inside. Handle is in very good condition as is the entire case.
The typewriter measures 12 x 12 x 6, and the case measures 13 x 14 x 7 1/2. Please review all pictures as they are a large part of the description.
