This bluebird came to me so filled with gunk, that if could virtually have been glued. The machine is now working perfectly, and has an amazingly type action.

The colour is also one of the most beautiful that I have seen on a typewriter. As much as it really harks back to its era of construction, I feel that it it still stands out as quite a modern colour.
