From This Olde Office collection: This Hammond Multiplex typewriter, circa: 1915, comes with its original oak case. It has a very unique keyboard with a dual English and an Asian or Middle Eastern (?) language. It is working but some of the keys are hard to strike. Generally, the keys strike the ribbon, return to rest and the carriage advances as intended. A good cleaning and a little light oil would improve its function. The case base is very sound and without and cracks or losses but the lid does have a little separation in one area on the top and would easily be improved with a bit of gluing. We have estimated its condition rating at 2,2-.
