It’s a Blickensderfer No. 5
This Blickensderfer is quite likely the funkiest typewriter ever, no less in appearance than name.* It’s like someone designed the non-QWERTY skeleton then wandered off (later models were screwed to a block of varnished wood like pinned butterflies). I wonder what sorts of things were written with it? I imagine someone banging out angry letters to the editor with three calloused fingers. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like to own one. My redoubtable Smith-Corona doesn’t have near as much … personality.
Update: I did not intend to slight the beautifully bizarre New Franklin. I am in love with such idiosyncrasies, while also glad the mainstream did not follow.
