This item sold on January 22, 2010.
The typewriter is classic gray and has dark green keys from the 50s. The typewriter is in good vintage condition. The carriage advances smoothly, the keys all function easily, the bell still dings that classic nostialgic sound. All strikers lay flat.
I have cleaned and oiled the machine so it is ready for use. I have installed a new two tone ribbon and this is ready to type in your home. There are the usual nicks in the paint where it clicks into the case and a few scuffs but nothing major.
The case is in good vintage condition and is clean. The case had a iron on patch with someones name on it and I removed the patch but it left the iron on adhesive behind. The original latch and handle is functioning just as good as when it was new.
