This elegant elongated typewriter pioneered the essential elements of the modern typewriter, with four rows of keys, front-strike visible typing, and a single shift key. However the Underwood typewriter would steal the show soon after in 1896 by having the same optimum design features as the Daugherty but in a better functioning machine. "DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT! A "Blind" Machine will not give as much satisfaction. Accept no substitute for visible writing. There's but one that has it Absolutely all the Time. The "Daugherty - Visible" Typewriter. ."
