I bought this in my first iteration of my collecting twelve years ago. This is a great typer, and even better when I put a fresh ribbon in. :-)

I also have a couple of Rockets from much earlier. Not so surprisingly, this has fewer issues and types better than those machines.

Pictures forthcoming, as I'm doing this from work.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
