    Stunning. The backside does look like a fantasy skyscraper, something I could imagine in Batman's Gotham City.

    That skyscraper description is true, especially the back view looks like… Metropolis.

    I'd say they're both quite similiar (weren't both inspired by the then New York?). I wrote my comment before I saw yours, and I'd say it's especially this view that the back resembles of.

    The art of industrial design continues to amaze me. That is a beautiful machine!

    That is pretty impressive to look at! It's great how it is staid and clean in the front, very square, but then there is all this architectural detail to admire from behind. Business in the front, party in the back… a mullet typewriter? :)

    Definitely that's a machine with a capital M! It's just amazing… And the backside design is sublime, I just adore it.

    Gorgeous! It was one of my early type writer collecting purchases and, yes, the speed is incredible with these things.

    What is the lever to the rear of the right side? On the rear post. It appears to have 3 or 4 positions.

    That's the typebar tension indicator. You adjust the tension with the wheel to the left of the indicator.
