    This is the renowned, but relatively rare VOSS ST24 model typewriter. This example, with a two-tone, blue and cream colour combination is particularly wonderful. It is a fine, solid typewriter with superb mechanics and a lovely, mid-century design. It has an amazingly smooth feel. I think of these Voss typewriters as sort of like the Cadillac of typewriters. It's a little bigger than it needs to be but within that size is luxury, smooth operation, fine engineering and a smooth ride (type). This particular VOSS is an excellent example of the ST24 model, in top condition mechanically and cosmetically. The nice feel of the typing makes it a pleasure to use. The wonderful, mid-century design makes it a pleasure to display.

    About Acme (more about the typewriter below):
    Acme typewriters have been the choice of discerning collectors and writers more than 1,000 times since we began selling internationally in 2016. We safely ship your typewriter from our gallery in the Netherlands and delivery time to the US averages only 3 days—this is a quicker delivery time even than most domestic shipments within the US!  Acme typewriters are guaranteed to arrive safely at your door, are covered by a 1-year warranty, and come with lifetime customer-care. 

    With an ACME Typewriter, you know you are getting a fully-working--as original--typewriter. The only thing that you have to do is sit down, put paper on the roller and start typing. Your typewriter comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty at no charge. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored in 2023 by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future.

    The Model ST24 has the tabulator system which makes it a little more "deLuxe" than the more common model S24.

    Mechanically, this typewriter works perfectly in every way. Cosmetically, it is in excellent condition with only a couple of tiny signs of age or use. But look at the photos and you will see what fine condition this typewriter is in. The chrome is in super condition. The rubber feet are soft and grip the desk. The paper feeder rollers are soft and grip the paper. The platen is clean and smooth and makes a fine typing impression. This means that you will have years of typewriting pleasure.

    The typeface is the Voss Pica (10 characters per inch). The keyboard is QWERTY, with extra keys for European languages.  It has a new bi-colour ribbon, on two original metal ribbon spools so you can start typing immediately.
