Mignon, 1923, N°4, Germany
Invented by: Dott.Friedrich Von Herfner and made by A.E.G. di Berlino.
Curios: This Model used the so-called “index” writing style. The letters were selected by moving the “index” device to the selected character. When the key is pressed the “character support” cylinder lowers and prints the letter on the page. Only disadvantage: slow typing speed.
The Mignon N°4 was the most succesfull in the series. The machine was a major success (some 380,000 were produced) and not only in Germany. The Mignon N°4 was exported to France, the Netherlands, England, the US and other countries. Different models were built for different markets.
