1920s Hammond Multiplex Folding Model 26
Up for sale is a really unique Hammond Multiplex Folding Model 26 which was made sometime in the 1920s. This typewriter was either factory-modified, or modified after production to allow it to use a special type of ribbon, possibly for carbon copy printing, however I really don't know much about it. There are no such examples that I have seen or heard of, other than this machine. This typewriter is in fully functional shape, aside from missing a ribbon, so it is effectively a collector's machine or decoration that does have the ability to function.
Cosmetically, this typewriter is in exceptional condition, and does not have any rust or corrosion. The carrying case is also in decent shape, and still has the original leather handle in-tact. This machine is one of the more interesting and rare folding typewriters, but is definitely not as functional and practical than the Corona Folding which was thriving around the same time period that this typewriter would have been made and used.
If you're in the market for a potentially one-of-a-kind machine, then this is an awesome machine that is already pretty uncommon in its stock form.
