1927 Bing No. 2
Up for sale is an uncommon Bing No. 2 which was made sometime around 1927 in Germany. This model has some interesting history, but was designed for students. It's almost a hybrid in between a toy typewriter and a real one. As such, the actual functionality of this machine is pretty limited and I would not recommend using this machine despite it being fully functional. Pretty much everything on this machine is metal aside from the rubber parts, which is interesting.
Cosmetically, this typewriter is in great shape. The paint is all in-tact and shiny. The nickel plated parts have a little evidence of wear, but there is no rust or any major corrosion.
As I have mentioned, this typewriter is in fully working shape, however it is best utilized as a collector machine or a decoration.
