From a Denmark collector's estate comes this absolutely beautiful Helios Klimax antique typewriter serial # 15043. It comes with its original oak base and tin lid. It is a rare two (2) bank keyboard typewriter with 21 keys, a triple shift and a single type ball with four (4) rows of characters. The cast iron base is complete and without any breaks, cracks or repairs. All the original graphics and pin striping is intact, with very little losses, and all easy to read. The ribbon spools, while antique, are most likely replacements.
Also, the carriage does not hold its position, (the carriage stay needs adjustment). The keys do properly turn the type ball and generally return to rest without assistance but a few are very sticky. The carriage does not advance when the keys and the space bar are struck, (carriage obviously needs retying). We are estimating its condition rating at 2,3- but with the suggested adjustments should increase to 2,2. circa: 1914
