The Scheidegger schools lasted up until the late 1980's and their typewriters were supplied by Adler with this model being basically an Adler J4 model. It's in a good working order, types well and is in a nice condition with only a few very minor marks to the body on the ribbon cover and some minor discolouration to some of the keys. The typewriter is in a light grey colour with standard light creme keys and darker brown shift keys, space bar and carriage knobs. This one has the standard elite sized type face giving you 12 letters to the inch.
