This later Underwood standard was not very far from where I picked up the Studio 42.
While this round-up of typewriter sightings does not include any particularly rare birds, I thought this Corona Silent was notable - it is not often we find these in the wild here, and even with a QWERTY keyboard.
In direct contrast is this Hermes 3000, which may be found easily at almost any time...
Well, this Olympia Traveller de Luxe looks familiar. I had one earlier this year but gladly parted ways with it. Looks like this seller has the same idea!
This Japy portable was so popular that it seems to make up a good 10% of all typewriters I see listed for sale in France. This one crossed the border into Geneva, but didn't seem to be attracting any more interest.
I could tell the seller of this Royal would ask a lot for it - after all, he had gone to all the trouble of writing down its history on an index card stuck in the platen.
A Royal KHM/KMM? Again, not very common here.
I suppose the Americans had a strong showing! This Remington Monarch was only $15 and the mint-green color was lovely, but it was otherwise rather ordinary.
An Olympia SM-8, type bars raised in the classic "I was just mauled by a small child" salute.
A Hermes Baby makes an appearance - of course.
Two nicely-maintained typewriters turned up in my neighborhood over the weekend: an Adler Gabriele and a Smith Corona Sterling, $20 each.
A fine Halda standard, but that French keyboard will be a pain to use.
My favorite sighting: absolutely pristine Underwood Leader. Just lovely.
