1919 #4 Blue Racer after restoration.
This Blue Racer turned out to be a Deluxe Model with an all nickel plated base. All of the plating is original and it cleaned up nicely. Blue Racers are a fairly fast key but much lighter than the Vibroplex Originals. I find it a bit difficult to send with my Blue Racers since they have a tendency to "walk" all over the operating table. I have a fairly heavy fist and dont want to screw the key down to the table to hold it in place since I swap keys on a regular basis.
