The Typewriter Database 1955 IBM Model B Serial # 388100 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rolf Boone: 1955 IBM Model B Serial # 388100 Bought an Olympia SG1 and the seller threw in this wonderful IBM. Now, it does power up but it's going to need some work to get all of the keys moving again. Other than that, everything appears to be intact, including an old ribbon from who knows when. Looking forward to the day when I can add a typeface sample.

Spotted a Royal KMG at a thrift store one day and it became a surprising source of inspiration.
