Earlier today, I got this little machine I bought from ebay almost 2 months ago. Thank you Covid-19!
I'm not a fan of small typewriters. For some mysterious reason, I prefer big desktop machines. However, this one caught my attention. It has a super rare typeface called Emerald and figures Corres according to the original sales document that comes along.
I found that Europeans, British in particular, prefer tiny little typefaces for their typewriters. I have another Imperial No. 5 that has very small typeface and the scale on the carriage goes up to 120, which is very interesting. The vast majority of Chinese typewriters, Flying Fish, Hero just to name a few, have PICA typeface, which is very boring. So typewriters with rare typefaces do catch my attention, this one in particular, as I have never heard about Emerald typeface.
