Found unexpectedly in sorry shape: the line ratchet is permanently (?) disengaged, something is bent or impeding the ribbon selector lever and the ribbon advance. And yet...

And yet, those stripes! Those keys! A scrap of paper in the case makes me think it was working recently, and maybe some mishandling put it into the state it\'s at now. At least the keychopper suppy is down 48 more potential trophies.
