FULLY OPERATIONAL WITH NO MISSING PARTS!

The box is in used condition but did a great job protecting this rare artifact in an attic for the last 70+ years where it was recently found in Germany. The typewriter itself is in used but still very nice condition. The original black paint of the typewriter is very nice. There are no missing or lose parts, everything works just fine, the sled moves easily, the "Umschalter" (Caps Lock on todays keyboards) and all other keys move fine, including the SS key. All this typewriter needs is a thourough cleaning and a new ribbon.

VERY RARE ORIGINAL THIRD REICH

SS TYPEWRITER

ONCE USED BY HEINRICH HIMMLERS POLICE, ALLGEMEINE SS OR WAFFEN-SS! FULLY OPERATIONAL WITH NO MISSING PARTS! COMES WITH ITS ORIGINAL TRANSPORTATION CONTAINER

This wonderful historic item, 'Modell Mercedes Superba' was made by Prestigious Mercedes Büromaschinen company and just like the Mercedes cars are superior vehicles, this Mercedes Typewriter must have been top of the line back in the days, the lid that covers the keys and the ribbon is very stylish, almost streamlined and definitely of superior quality than the regular typewriters that were used in German offices in Nazi Germany and we therefore think that this was eithe ra private purchase or belonged to a higher ranking officer. This fully operational item is a nice example of a Third Reich portable typewriter that could be used in a Amtsstube (Office) as well as by SS units (or other Nazi officials or organizations) at the front lines, in occupied territories, on field exercises or any other occasion. The box is sturdy but still lightweight, making it easy and convenient to carry this typewriter. The box show signs of wear but still very nice. There are no parts missing and all moving parts move the way they are supposed to. All it really needs is a cleaning and a new ribbon because it has dried out but we will assist in finding a new ribbon through our contacts.

Close up of the 'Sondertaste', the SS key that makes this typewriter so valuable. Many of these typewriters were of course destroyed in the war and of the few that survived, many had the SS rune key altered or removed after 1945. This one here is all complete and fully functional. What looks like pitting of the paint on the picture above is actually only slight dust and the typewriter will look very nice again when it receives a cleaning.
