Wanted: Ingersoll Typewriter
The Ingersoll, as basic as it is, is still considered a typewriter. It was comprised of 60+ rubber stamps that traveled on a coiled metal band attached to two posts, all resting on a wooden base. There were two pads for the stamps to slide over for inking. The typewriter was produced ca.1885 by the Robert Ingersoll Company, Limited of New York. One known name variant is the Domestic Type-Writer which, incredibley, was available in 12 different sizes. Another variant, though unconfirmed, may be the Nason, produced by Nason Typewriter, Ltd. The Nason would have been constructed almost completely of metal.
