The Chicago was the successor of the 1890 Munson typewriter. The inventory and the intellectural rights were sold in 1897 to a new company named The Chicago Writing Machine Company and in 1898 the typewriter name was also changed to The Chicago and this is a first model of that Chicago Typewriter. It still has its original oak case as well as its original cleaning kit and oil can both in its small wooden box, see photos. This machine is entirely original and only has been cleaned and oiled. The art work is clear and easily read. It very clearly states patent dates of 1889, 1891 and 1892. While it is sluggish from lack of use we are estimateing its condition rating as 2,2 and believe it to be in very good condition.
