Er... it has only 75*40=3000 symbols (minus the unassigned positions), and
doesn't appear to have any (marked) shift keys.  Unicode has what, like 2
planes worth of allocated scripts, with a roughly similar ratio of
unassigned codes.  This means your "complete" typewriter is 1 2/3 orders of
magnitude too small :p

Unless that green handle is for replacing the top board and you have 43
other such boards on the side.
