I purchased this for resale around 2 months ago. The previous owner had it since 1973. Condition is fine. Can send or post pics.
I am based in Johannesburg and am an auctioneer specialising in household goods including antiques, art and collectables. This is the 2nd Curta I've handled.
Please note: It also has an unusual factory engraved inscription on it.
Am not sure of the protocol on this forum. If interested, please post a message here or email me.
Thx

Interesting, and better and earlier than my earliest Type 2s - 406 was a repaired machine (looks like Frankenstein to the expert) I bought for the odd case, and 550 is marked up. Well done Murff.

Yes - the Curta looks very nice now... after about four hours of cleaning. It's running like a charm and I also found some replacements for the o-ring and the gummi things...

Suttner's

After five years another Suttner's Curta has arrived... (And, after a long time, once again an eBay deal which I usually avoiding - but the price was OK)



It's an early Type I in a very nice condition and it came in a fitting cannister with old "CURTA" lettering and opens counterclockwise



... more pictures: Curta Type 1 - Suttner's Curta

If someone knows anything about "SOLE S. A. AGENTS - SUTTNER'S - P. O. BOX 6490 JOHANNESBURG" please post it here... (nothing found in the www)

Beautiful early example, and interesting provenance, I only have one of the CCW cases even though I have a couple of early machines. Good for you!
