What the heck is a "Monpti"? looks intriguing!
In french, it means "my little one" / mon petit
I've added "Monpti" as a marque in typewriterdatabase.com and filed it under "Consul". You are encouraged to add yours to the gallery. (:
Hey, you have a Monpti. I almost won a bid for one on ebay Deutschland and I still have not recovered from the loss. Can you describe the typing action? Much better than Valentine?
I remember this auction. there were two monptis for sale in a row, whereas previously i hadn't seen one in years. Typing action, i still need to fix the carriage, but it is a Consul inside so should be similar. Certainly not a pardon my french crappy Valentine.
Georg, thanks, I didn't know that it had the mechanism of a Consul. I still hope to score a Monpti someday.
