The Sun No 2 was introduced in 1901 by The Sun Typewriter Company of New York. It was patented by Lee S. Burridge who held patents on the Sun Index Typewriters. This machine sold for $40 when new and was the first non cast iron key board typewriter. Its low cost and keyboard design significantly helped to obsolete index typewriting. This specific machine is the one in the photograph on page 10 of Adler's From Creed to Qwerty published by Schiffer in 1997.
It comes with its original carrying case and has a condition rating of 2,2.
