I didn't realise I had a stock of "hot rod typewriters" until I came across this item in the Amazing Mill Markets in Daylesford in Victoria in September. Imagine my surprise to not just see a stripped down machine being sold as is, but to look at the price tag: $120!!! By that reckoning my little stockpile of Nakajimas, Olympias and Kofas (Flying Fish) is worth $600! But for the time being at least, it will continue to gather dust in the typewriter workshop. Any offers?
