Available is this vintage ALLIED typewriter ribbon tin from the 1950s. Typewriter ribbon tins are becoming harder to find now that typewriters are obsolete and a thing of the past. Desirable, rare and good condition tins, like this one are getting even more difficult to find, price and value is certain to increase as the availability of these decreases. This rare tin is a wonderful example of vintage Americana done in an art deco style. Bright colors of gray, black, white and red are used in the graphics of the Allied logo and in the seagull hovering over the ocean waves. The top lid screws down to the bottom half which reads; “ALLIED CARBON & RIBBON MFG. CORP.” NEW YORK 13, N.Y.”. This tin is in excellent condition; free of any wear, rust, paint loss, fading, dents or dings. Approximate dimensions are 7/8 inches thick and 2-5/8 inches in diameter. Don’t miss your chance to add this typewriter ribbon tin to your collection or to give as a unique gift for that special someone.
