National Typewriter

Wanted: National Typewriter

Inventing the National typewriter officially commenced in 1885 when its first patent was issued to Franz X. Wagner. Then in 1889 Henry H. Unz was issued a supplemental patent which completed the machine. The National was produced in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by the National Typewriter Company. It featured a curved, three-row keyboard and a front-upstrike typebar arrangement.
