Overall this machine is in excellent condition! There is very little signs of wear and only a small amount of paint loss where the typewriter clicks into the case at the back. This machine was loved and cared for throughout the years and will continue to work for many years to come! The keys are a dark emerald green and so are the carriage knobs. The accent keys on the sides are a lighter green color.
Mechanically speaking the machine is in great working condition. The carriage moves smoothly the bell still dings that old nostalgic ding at the end of each line. All keys operate easily. The backspace key has to be pushed firmly or sometimes it sticks down but all you have to do is lift up on the key and it works fine. I have cleaned, oiled, and installed a new black ribbon on this machine and it is ready for use in your home.
The case is in excellent condition the latch, hinges, and handle all work just like when it was new!
And, last but not least this comes with the original owners manual and also a finger/keyboard diagram.
