Made by Keller & Knappich in West Germany in the 1960's for the Willy Scheldegger Swiss Typing School. When you signed up for your typing course you were obliged to purchase one of these machines. This one comes with the original coloured key caps which you can use to cover the key tops and practice the art of touch typing. It has the Scheidegger logo on the front left and the manufactures detail on the back. This one has the standard "elite " sized font giving you 11 letters to the inch.

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Universal ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.

We can supply Universal TW38 typewriter ribbons from £6.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options.

This model has a metal casing with enamel paintwork which is in a good general condition but does have some minor marks and signs of wear in places. A few of the coloured key top covers also show some signs of wear and the underneath of the ribbon cover also has some residue left from what would have originally been a lining that has worn away. The typewriter measures 30 cm by 30 cm by 8 cm high, making it a very compact portable typewriter.

It has a smart tan coloured vinyl carry case which has a few small marks and signs of wear. The closure and handle both work well. It sits on the baseboard and you need to keep it on the base board for it to work properly.

This is a nice Willy Scheidegger two tone 1960's Princess-matic typewriter in a nice working condition and comes with it's original coloured key tops as well as a copy of a manual and a copy of the touch typing chart.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
