Love this mid century retro portable typewriter! Penncrest Jayvee typewriters were a variant of Smith Corona Cosair Line and sold by JC Penny. The first poems I wrote were on a typewriter and I would have felt like such the poet if I would have had this aqua blue beauty!

Light vintage wear, case shows normal scuffing, but no cracks, and typewriter work great. As you can see, the typewriter ribbon still works, but I imagine the ink will not last much longer considering its age. Measures about 12" x12" x 4" high with case on. I gave the typewriter case a second cleaning after taking pictures, which helped, but if it had a third, would probably look even nicer. I was able to wipe off the two small orangish stains under the space bar shown in picture.
