This Blue Bird 20 is a beautifully compact machine that is highly sought after by collectors, Blue Bird is the export name of the highly regarded and uncommon German Torpedo Typewriters.


It has a metal frame and is in overall good condition for its age, with very minimal signs of wear for its year, it has a compact footprint.


This typewriter was designed for travelling use, rather than extensive typing as a desk machine, hence how compact it is, so please do bear this in mind.


Fresh black/red ribbon installed.


For info: one of the rubber feet has flattened slightly on this machine, so would benefit from having a pad placed underneath when typing and zip is missing from case.
