The model 19 (also 15) printer is a type-basket design (akin to a typewriter).
The pictured unit uses a type-box printhead like that of the model 28, but given the
4-row keyboard and the application, Cory likely has it right as a model 35 printer.
I think you'd have to see the decoding mechanics on the right side of the printer to confirm 35 vs. 28.
