Yes, there was a Mercedes type writer manufactured in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s. I have several original and good condition Mercedes type writers, as I have much other Mercedes memorabilia. Offered here is a Mercedes Supra, manufactured in Thueringen in the 1930s, original with the original carrying case, beautifully made from wood with surface cover and a lock. Put a new ink ribbon into the type writer and off you go, writing on an 80 year old piece of art. If interested in original Mercedes memorabilia, please ask. I am into originality and quality, not into cheap. Please do not low ball, thank you.
