What an amazing piece of history! This basic model was patented in 1933 and comes with a nice and sturdy wooden case, The Stenotype Reader and The Advanced Stenotype Reader as well as The Stenotypy Theory Manual.

It is still loaded with aged paper, and the ribbon appears to be in working condition. Would look most fabulous on display in your vintage office. I have not fully tested it, but it does seem to type well and could be restored to its former glory by someone in the know.

The stenotype itself is in fair condition, with some very slight corrosion in the top piece, and some general wear/light chipping on the top as well as some mild dustiness. The case is a bit worn but the plastic handle and outer covering are sturdy. Two of the books are in fair condition, with some pencil markings. However, the Stenotype Reader's back cover is missing and the front cover is loose.

All in all, this is still a fabulous find and would be a great addition to any collection.

I will carefully clean and dust the stenotype to the best of my ability before shipment, but I do not want to harm the piece so I will be very delicate.

The stenotype case measures 5 5/8" wide, 9 1/4" long and 11 1/2" tall, and the piece itself is 8 1/4" wide at the keys, 10 1/2" long and 5" tall.

Please convo me for shipping rates outside of the U.S.
