Christmas 1942 - a Marx Dial Typewriter for $2.11

Above, the 1942 Sears Christmas Book ad for a Marx Dial typewriter. It was a very popular $2.11 Christmas gift of the time, and 77 years on it's still very much in demand!

The typewriter was designed by Samuel Irving Berger (1889-1970), of Newark, New Jersey.
