    Mechanically this typewriter is in perfect working condition. All systems have been checked and adjusted or aligned as necessary. It has been thoroughly cleaned and properly lubricated for years of service.All the chrome is unblemished and uncorroded. The keytops are in excellent condition without any signs of fingernail scratching or any other damage. Everything works as it should and as originally designed. The paint finish is original and has not been over- or re-painted. Please note that there is some light paint wear and light cracking of the finish on the ribbon cover under the carriage lever. These areas are hardly visible.

    This typewriter has a very nice and soft typing "touch". This is a Model KsT and therefore has the tabulator system.  

    The keyboard is standard QWERTY. This is the original keyboard and has not been changed from the german QWERTZ keyboard as many of these are. The typeface is Pica (10 c.p.i.) and is a very nice, elegant font.  The platen roller is smooth, clean and soft, with an ideal durometer reading of ~89 (ideal is considered to be between 82 and 95). The Paper Feeder Rollers are new-like and soft. The Feet are new-like and soft.
