I found this lovely turquoise machine in a church thrift shop in Iowa on a cross country road trip. The font is a little wide and round, but very serviceable. The body is in perfect shape. I paid $6.98 for it.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
