An estate sale find Spring 2014, I was all excited to find this typewriter that I bought it without notice of the 3 missing keys… Oh well, the Steel caring case is amazing.

Oh, the reason for two sets of fonts, I was cleaning this machine, took out the spools and the top set of lettering is without a ribbon bottom with ribbon.

Guess I didnt clean it that good….

I hate to use the expression "Treasure Hunter" But it fit's, and that's what I do. My wife calls it a problem, I can think of a lot worst things to do in my spare time. Antiques have always been part of my life, they keep you grounded and keep you in touch with the old days of hard work, ingenuity and craftsmanship. I'm kinda old to get started into this new hobby, but when I jump in, I'm all in…I have a lot to learn so be patient with me...
