This particilar machine is the one in the photograph on page 169 of Micahael Adler's Antique Typewriters, From Creed To Qwerty
It is all original but has been cleaned and oiled. It is in very good condition and we estimate its rating at a 2,2. The Postal was the invention of Franklin Judge and William P. Quentell and based primarily on their patents of 1903. Its function is similar to that of the Blickensderfer in that it also uses an interchangable type ball. The Postal was made by The Postal Typewriter Company in New York and came out in 1908. This speciman was likely manufactured in 1909 or 1910.
