Peggy Olson's Royal Safari For Sale: Typewriters in the News

The pale blue Royal Safari semi-portable typewriter once used by Elisabeth Moss, as Margaret "Peggy" Olson, in the AMC TV series Mad Men, will be auctioned off next Wednesday, a week after "Peggy's" 77th birthday.
Online auction house ScreenBid.com, of Culver City, California, is offering the typewriter (Lot MMii-626) as part of the sale of set items from the series on behalf of producer Lionsgate Television. The Royal typewriter was seen in "Peggy's" old apartment early in the series.
In Bonn in Germany, the Erika 6 portable typewriter which belonged to Andreas Baader (1943-1977), leader of the left-wing militant organisation the Red Army Faction (Baader-Meinhof Group), is back on display at the Museum of Contemporary History.
