What's the difference? Oliver Standard vs. Oliver Print-type

Hi all. I just acquired something to tinker with, and am planning to have some real fun. It is a rather complete (appearance wise) but extremely rusted No. 9. (I like taking things apart and fixing them!)

But, in looking on the Typewriter Database website I notice that the gallery pictures show off two different ones. One is called "Print-Type" and the other is simply called "Standard". Can folks tell me the differences? And, how accurate is the database dating of these? Thanks.

Re: What's the difference? Oliver Standard vs. Oliver Print-type

Printype were supposed to make the type look like how a books type was printed.

Standard was standard font.



Im not sure what dates the printype range from, but I think they range in most machines. For example, the oliver 9 (I have a oliver 9 printype), can either be standard or printype.


Back from a long break.

Starting fresh with my favorite typer. A Royal Futura!
