Wanted: Odell Typewriter
This "O'dell's Type Writer" is a true Odell No.1 model. Unlike later models which were built on round bases, these No.1s had a straight base that spanned the length of the carriage. Each end of the base was accented by a pair of seal's feet which is why it's aptly referred to as the "Seal Foot Odell.". These Odell No.1 typewriters were produced briefly ca.1889 by the Odell Type Writer Company of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
