This YU ESS typewriter was made by the German company Mignon although it states USA on the machine. It was made exclusively for the US market and the "YU ESS" is the way the German manufacturer spelled "US". The "Star of David" symbol was added since they apparently thought most American business men of the time were Jewish. The action on this machine is very smooth and we estimated its rating at a 2,2+.
