In a not working condition!

In beautiful and unfortunately not working condition, this is a Smith typewriter. Serial Number SV90446. This is one of the first productions.
This special model with double keys was presented as something unique. The bottom row was for capital letters.
Also the placement of the ink ribbon holders was unique; they were mounted on the back in an upright position.
However, the use by typists quickly proved that they had a lower typing speed compared to the machines with single keys.
After 1913, they were forced to stop production because the machines were no longer sold.
The purchased machines ended up in the scrap yard and many of these machines were destroyed.
On the back can be seen that one of the ink ribbon holders is missing; the ribbon is broken.
The keys on the board work well, apart from the large tab and the small button to the right, probably the feathers are off, the piece runs smoothly.
One of the red-coloured keys on the upper right is bent and I’m afraid to bent it back, as I am afraid it will break (photo 6).
The machine may be used with a new coil and ribbon, but may also be suited as a decorative addition.
This machine weighs ca. 15 kilos.
The machine will be properly packed and sent by insured and registered mail.

    L'emballage était tellement mal fait que la Radio que j'ai acheté est arrivée complètement cassée. Je ne recommande pas ce vendeur qui manifestement n'est pas du tout précautionneux !

    Good afternoon, please write in English. I don"t speak or read French.
    Greetings Marita.
    Ik heb U gevraagd in het Engels te reageren maar tot heden 30-04-2018 niets van U vernomen.Wat betreft Uw klacht; U heeft de radio ontvangen op 16-04-2018 en pas op 24 04-2018 verzend U Uw klacht..
    Dit is iets wat ik niet snap.Als U iets ontvangt is het volgens mij logisch dat als U constateerd dat de verpakking beschadigd is U direct reageerd en niet 8 dagen later.
    De radio was verpakt met de vermelding : Breekbaar(Fragile).Als de vervoerder er al slordig is mee omgegaan is dit na 8 dagen als het al lukt alleen te bewijzen met foto"s van de verpakking en zeker van de volgens U totaal vernielde radio die trouwens zeker goed verpakt in z.g. bubbelplastic was.
    Ik vind dit uiteraard erg vervelend maar U had veel eerder moeten reageren.
    M.v.g. Marita
