Fair Trade?

My 1909 Fox 24 came with it's original cover

The Fox is in wonderful condition with great decals.

I also got this Royal "P" Model in the trade.

The Royal P cleaned up real nice and looks great.

Here's what I had to give up.

This Molle No.3 is in fabulous condition.

And it comes with a cool story. It was hard to give up.

The Arabic keyboard on this machine was beautiful.

The Underwood Ace Comes with a cool case.

This 1954 Underwood Ace in near mint condition.

This Lettera 32 was made in Spain but assembled in South Africa.

This 1937 Monarch Pioneer is another great example of a depression era machine.

A handful of tools that I use the most for repairs.

A Banner Year At Cambridge Typewriter Co.

A late 1920's Royal Portable for a teen writer

A powder blue 1957 Smith Corona Silent-Super.

A mid 1950's Royal Aristocrat in near mint condition.

A 1936 Royal de Luxe in beautiful shape for a college writer.

A early tri-color Royal Futura 800.

Is this worth saving?

Not sure what this machine is.

I thought it might be a Cole Steel but no.
