National Typewriter Co., Philadelphia
1889 - serial no.3848

The National is a compact, unique, and beautiful typewriter. Its type bars hang down in a semi-circle to strike the underside of the platen. The hinged carriage must be lifted to reveal what has been typed.

There are two shift keys, uniquely moving the whole keyboard assembly forwards and backwards.

This example of the rare National is in excellent original condition and is shelf ready for your collection.

Please inquire about the price.
