Just curious.  Are there any typewriters where the capital "W" is a crossed-W or a W-with-four-upper-terminals?  You might know it as a capital-W with an "x" in the middle, or as a capital-W with 3 v's.  You can find a picture of the "W" here: http://www.identifont.com/identify?6+wW+B6H+30C+20+9Y+8R2

Going through the latest ETCetera I saw a North's typewriter in the "New On Shelf" Section.  I had never heard of one and searched ebay and found this calendar medal for sale.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/1895-CALENDAR-MEDAL-THE-NORTHS-ENGLANDS-TYPE-WRITER-53-QUEEN-VICTORIA-ST/233120396275?hash=item36470ef3f3:g:B2QAAOSw~5dcMc3H

Hi, I'm curious as to the dimensions and weight of the Corona 3 typewriter and the Erika (or Bijou) folding typewriter.  Robert Messenger has great pictures of them next to each other but it's hard to tell the proportions.  https://oztypewriter.blogspot.com/2011/04/perkeo-and-other-folding-portable.html

An early (1910?) Corona 3 folding typewriter, with "Standard Folding Typewriter" in parentheses.  Not the greatest shape but no bids yet on $69.95 +$12.60 shipping ending in 1 day (Sunday the 16th).  The kicker? It's being sold from Groton, NY where it was originally built.  If you're looking for a well-travelled typewriter, this is probablly not the one! https://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-1910-CORONA-FOLDING-TYPEWRITER-3-GROTON-NY-RARE-COLLECTIBLE/223546678220?hash=item340c6b9bcc:g:Y6EAAOSw3Rdc~ajy

An 1930's Yiddish typewriter made by the Barr-Morse Corporation. (Owned by John H. Barr, who played the "lead role in the revolutionary design for the first Remington portable typewriter." (See Robert Messenger's webpage https://oztypewriter.blogspot.com/2011/05/john-hbarr-and-remington-portable.html ))

A nice 1932 Triumph with Fraktur Typeface.  I've never seen the back of one so I was surprised to see the "yellow plexiglass insert on the back which gives the inside of the machine a beautiful glow when the sun is shining."  All in all, a good reason to buy a lottery ticket.

A fun clip from the movie, "Ready, Willing and Able" (1937).  Would you say 0.2 pitch?  https://youtu.be/YjTUnDlaNWs?t=259
