    1. When I first got it, it almost felt out of place due to its magnificence.
      It's just so…wonderful. I'm lucky to have gotten it for what I paid!

  6. A golden Continental? Amazing! Especially for a German depression machine. I'm a bit speechless...

    2. Well, some of the most fantastically colored typewriters were made during the depression!

  7. I know, this is a little bit outdated... howsoever... Saxony is also the name of the federal state in Germany those gorgeous Continental (Wanderer-Werke) typewriters were produced. Congratulations, to this particularly beautiful specimen.

    1. I probably should have been more clear about the Saxony vs Germany bit, as I do know Saxony is the area where these were built. They might have chosen to say that instead of Germany thinking of "Anglo-Saxon".
