I am back from some traveling and I have obtained two new typewriters and my Sterling which was out for repair. The Sterling was bought on Etsy and it was a low price. The seller noted it was not working (carriage wasn't advancing) and while discussing it, she mentioned that the typeface was larger than usual. I asked for more and found out it was 6 characters per inch. What a thing to leave out of the description!
I do not know what these were used for. It types well, although it is slower than normal due to the greater space needed for each character and line, but the width is not sufficient for much typing on each line. I used my Smith-Corona Silent for comparison, as it may be hard to tell in the scans by itself. It is similar to a regular Sterling except for the ruler and the fact it does not support bi-colour ribbons due to the height of the characters. The line spacing and escapement and all that are also specific to the spacing this needs.
