Mignon Model 2

Index typewriting technology was pretty much obsoleted after the turn-of-the-century by the introduction of several inexpensive sheet metal keyboard typewriters. The Mignon of Germany was one of the exceptions. It was manufactured from 1903 into the early 1930s. It was advertised that a Mignon could type faster than contemporary keyboard machines since both hands could be used. Before the touch system of typing it was pretty much hunt and peck and usually with only one hand. This machine is an earlier Mignon and was manufactured around 1905. It has its original case and is all original except that the paper tray has been restored. The action on this machine is extraordinarily smooth. We estimate its rating at 2,2+.
