Sterling (improved)

First year of production:
1905
Company:
Sterling Typewriter Co , New York , USA
Serial nr:

The Sterling typewriter was a three-row swinging sector typewriter, developed by C.J. Paulson. The machine was produced with the name Eagle in 1905. Production was apparently resumed in 1910 or 1911 as the Sterling.

The principle of the Sterling is very similar to that of the Hammond, with a single type element swinging around a vertical rod (see pic 6).

Not many details are known about its production history.
