Not a typo...worlds oldest production machine sells for a whopping £80,000.<br />
<br />
The Malling-Hansen Writing Ball was invented and put into production in the late 1860's to early 1870's and was the earliest typewriter to be made. <br />
<br />
Only 180 of these typewriters were ever produced and to this day there are only 6 machines still in private collector's hands. <br />
<br />
German auction house Team Breker sold the historic machine at the weekend.
