SS TYPEWRITER

ONCE USED BY HEINRICH HIMMLERS POLICE, ALLGEMEINE SS OR WAFFEN-SS! FULLY OPERATIONAL WITH NO MISSING PARTS! EXCELLENT CONDITION!

This wonderful historic item was made by Torpedo-Werke company in Frankfurt a.M., Germany. 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 shows some wear and the leather grip of the handle is missing (which could be easily replaced) but the typewriter itself is in excellent condition. There are no parts missing, all moving parts move the way they are supposed to and it is ready to be used to write "original" SS documents (after the quite dry ribbon has been replaced).

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 nearly as good as new when it receives a cleaning.

sample, typed on this very typewriter. The ribbon is a bit dry but there are still replacements available. (And there is a typo...)

this typewriter was sold by Hugo Raulf in Essen who had a dealership of the Torpedo company in this city.
