QuoteThe Linotypes maybe Russian. Looking at the name plate it does not appear to say LINOTYPE. I'm sure that prior to 1917 Linotypes manufactured in Russia would have had Linotype on the name plate, after that I wouldn't be too sure. Below are two machines from Russian web sites. Note the name plate on the tape machine. So I think it could very well be a Russian Linotype Factory. But then I've been wrong before.RegardsGeorgeTypesetting machine strokootlivnoy AT-140: 1 - keyboard, 2 - temperature,3 - Reception Table 4 - Block kegelnyh knives, 5 - control unit, 6 - stick;7 - metallopodavatel; 8 - razborochny apparatus; 9 - collector; 10 --punched tape.

QuoteDave, found the second line in the Linotype name plate also on the Linotypein the Deutsches Museum.This line is in German language: Geschütztes Zeichen.Which means in English: firmasymbol-Copyright.Thanks to George Finn who gave me the hint with his last Linotype photo madein Germany.So, do we have here a model from the German sector?regardsBerry
