This machine often marks the beginning of a collector's passion, especially in Europe. Like many inventions, the Mignon was at first the godchild of a completely different idea: its manufacturer was theAllgemeine Electrizitäts Gesellschaft (AEG)of Berlin, on whose board of directors sat the creator and former director of the dynamo division of Siemens,Friedrich von Hefner-Alteneck.The Mignon is an index typewriter because you need to use your index finger to type! The rectangular index includes 84 characters in seven rows. The lowercase letters are arranged on the right, the capitals on the left, and special characters on the perimeter. The arrangement of the characters follows the order of their frequency, starting with the center of the index.
