Caligraph #3 Antique Typewriter

more pictures

This Caligraph No 3 antique typewriters dates to the mid 1880s. It is complete but not working. It does need a good cleaning and probably some adjustment to work as intended.

The Caligraph typewriter was (arguably) the second typewriter and first introduced in 1881. This typewriter was before the caps key was invented and had both a upper and lower case keyboard. Also, the roller platen had flat surfaces all around because printers print (requiring flat striking surfaces) was used on the typewriter and before curved typewriter print.
