Michigan antique mall purchase. Note with machine said "professionally serviced and cleaned and new ribbon. Came with case. Typed well. Type specimen bears out the note. At the mall when I examined it, I pressed one key and didn't see any ink. Turns out the ribbon was not put through the ribbon vibrator--I corrected that at home. SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
