Blickensderfer 5 portable typewriter – circa 1895

Blickensderfer 5 TypewriterThe historic Blickensderfer 5 typewriter was the first portable keyboard typewriter in the world and became known affectionately as the ‘five pound secretary’.

I have fully cleaned this typewriter and it operates very smoothly, however as its feed roller has a flat side, which is very common on typewriters of this age, it will no longer accept a sheet of paper for typing.

It comes with its original case and has an extra type-wheel in the cylindrical holder inside.

Price $475

Please be touch if you have any questions.
