This machine has a ‘Type-wheel’ with three rows of characters. It has a three-row QWERT keyboard with pale yellow circular keys with black lettering.
This portable typewriter is of the type-wheel class. The design was originally patented in 1889 by George C Blickensderfer and marketed by his company as the Blickensderfer 5, beginning in 1893. Production ceased when Blickensderfer died in 1917. The tools and dies were eventually bought by the Remington Typewriter Company who re-started production of the Blickensderfer 5 in 1927-28 as the "Rem-Blick".
Depressing a key on this machine causes the type wheel to rotate until the selected character is in position, followed by a downstroke motion to press the character against the paper and platen. Ink is applied to the characters as the typewheel brushes past an inking roller during the downstroke
