1960s Antares Parva
Here is a unique Antares Parva from the 1960s. This typewriter was made in Italy, and I have to say it looks pretty funky. The "@" and cent key typebar does not work along with the "1/4" and "1/2" typebar. The typebars are bent somewhere internally that I could not reach to fix, so they stick to the point where I'd call them inoperable. Otherwise, the rest of the typewriter types very nicely, especially for such a flat, aerodynamic typewriter as this one is. The case design is also interesting, because you open it up by pressing two buttons on either side of the typewriter to release the case. I wouldn't want to use this typewriter heavily, but it's still in great working condition, and can be used quite a bit.
