It looks like a Hohner, which was made in Germany. American Printing Equipment sold them in the US, and schools were a major market for APE. They are shown in American Printing Equipment/American Wood Type catalogs.

do not know if it is a Hohner or not but it also may be a German machine as I live in Turkey, I heard about lots of them around Greece and Georgia. Probably there are a lot of them in Turkey too

A Hohner is a German machineand usually very HEAVY for its size.
