Blickensderfer Manufacturing Company
George Canfield Blickensderfer
Original Price: $25-50
The model 9 is the last model of the Blickensderfer typewriters while the company was under the ownership of George C. Blickensderfer's family. Only 10,000 of the machines are thought to have been produced. Most notable for their beautiful shape, cylindrical and interchangeable typewheel, and DHIATENSOR keyboard design, this particular Blickensderfer model 9 has a 3-row QWERTY keyboard. As evidenced by the "$" symbol on the keyboard, and lacking any other foreign markings, it seems this machine was made for the American market.
