Thanking the ever so vigilant Type Writer Conservatory for presenting this excellent Oliver to the World. I am quite fond of its ancestor, the Patria, first version, of which I own a couple - helas none in working condition.
You are ever-so-welcome! We, at the Conservatory, are pleased that our vigilance can be rewarded with readers like you! --M.A. Rice Curator & Director
Congratulations! Readers can click here to compare it to my own Greek specimen.
Richard, I remember reading that entry back in February and your kind mention of the Johnstown Type Writer Conservatory. I just acquired the Courier version and added an addendum to the Tlog.--Marty
I am not sure that the reason old British typewriters have a preponderance of fraction keys is due to the L.s.d pre-decimal currency. As the smallest unit (the farthing) was only one quarter of a penny, the highest fraction you would need would only be 3/4 (for three farthings). There is no need to use all those eighths.
