Introduced around 1900, this is the second and most commonly seen version of the Suitcase Standard, with the square lid secured by four clips rather than two. The compact design made for a very reliable machine, and judging by surviving examples this machine sold in respectable numbers both in the United States and on the Continent.
Although there would be changes in the case design of the Edison Standard during its long production run, and changes in the upperworks to accomodate 4 minute gearing, the basic design of the Standard would remain little altered through the Model G machinery of 1912.
