Archimedes D

This Archimedes machine is mechanically identical to the Archimedes C, except for the keyboard and the location of the crank. It is totally beyond me why these machines routinely fetch only 100 EUR or so, while the tenfold price is paid for a machine with slider settings.

Anyway, this machine is in a sorry state, and has been repainted with thick black paint. As can be seen from the stickers, it was used in the VEB Dresden, but I bought it in Berlin. It needs a bit of restoration, which I will eventually get round to.
