That’s a nice royal, though the price is pretty steep!!

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.

Typical Etsy. And yet another Fraktur model that someone is trying to flip for an obscene price. The fact that these regularly sell for $500-$800 CAD on eBay is crazy enough, but asking $2,000 CAD is just plain insane. The seller is obviously counting on a person who lights cigars with $100 bills to hand over the money.

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 ))

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!
