Here's a pick that I did Sunday. It's an Oliver #9 Typewriter Serial#600800. i think it was made around 1915 or 1916 in Chicago, IL.
The return cord for the paper carrier was hanging out the back of the typewriter but there was a little left on the spool for me to get it going. I actually found a guy in Douglasville, Ga. that had a new tray carrier cord and a repro owners manual to help figure out all the cool levers that hang of this typewriter. I'm not a typewriter guy but it was just sitting there staying back at me wanting to go home with me. It has an art deco/gothic look to it. Enjoy folks!
