Re: L.C. Smith & Bros. No 2

Omg yes i know the difference between the two >.< ,  but I mean there is no way (as far as i know)  to type '?' on my machine,  that was why i wondered if it was a combination like the exclamation point (where i would type"dot Backspace apostrophe")

Re: L.C. Smith & Bros. No 2

Karolina, just to be clear, do you have the original ribbon spools and it's just the nuts that are missing?

As for the missing question mark, it is strange not to have one, but there are specialty keyboards that didn't include certain punctuation marks as part of their typeset. Could you possible post a photo of your keyboard? There are instructions for doing this in the FAQ thread. Also, did you buy the machine locally, or was it shipped to you from another country? Where the typewriter was originally sold would possibly help to answer your question.

EDIT: I see that we posted at the same time. So your typewriter was an export model fitted with a Swedish typeset. Are there any other special keys with unusual characters on them?

Re: L.C. Smith & Bros. No 2

Sorry again about that


Oh, wow! A swedish keyboard! Cool..

They probably took out the question mark and replaced it with something else..
