haha....sorry if you find you are nicely taken in.  Yes I am a typewriter collector. I have more than 50 of them. Some of them, such as this Mignon was brought home from Berlin.  Have you ever used any typewriters? Do you like them? to me, typewriters are the most beautiful invention of the industrial age.

so, you see, im not against everything that's western!

if you like to, pls check my full collection in my space:  gerardshenyi.spaces.live.com/photos  under the albumn of : my prize possessions

very impressive. I've used machinic typewriter but none of these.
How much you paid for the one from Berlin?
Have you ever found those secretary typewriters used in the courts? very tiny size. I don't know if they are typewriters or they have other names. I've never seen one .
