Time for a typewriter safari

Today, Ohio Valley Antique Mall was crawling with typewriters ... and I crawled through it too. Now you can do the same just by scrolling through this post.

Two of these typewriters are models I had never seen before "in the wild." One of them was a must-buy. I think it will be pretty easy for you to guess what I'm talking about, unless you're a newbie to typewriter collecting. Feel free to post your guesses in comments. I'll post the answers tomorrow.
