Typecast Klein Adler Typewriter

Here is a small typecast from my Klein Adler typewriter. I just bought it from the Scryption Museum. I've never seen a 93-year-old typewriter in such a good condition! The keys are a bit dirty, but only under the glass, so I think it's fungus. It still types really nice.

A Dutch biography about Levie (Louis) Fles can be found here.

Frank, that is in remarkable condition. Do you have any idea where to find a replacement ribbon? My Blick Universal is very thread-bear and I would really like to replace its ribbon and do some typing on it. Any advice gratefully received.

Ribbons with a width of 20mm for Klein Adler you can find them in the Netherlands webshop: http://www.gtb4u.nl/Webwinkel-Product-144113603/Inktlint-breedte-20mm-voor-o.a.-Klein-Adler-(1920-).html
You had to respool them on the old spools.
