The Typewriter Database 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 II 0066986 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 II 0066986 Wanted one since I found out they exist. Now I have one! Not a perfect substitute for a II though, as the pitch cannot be adjusted. So I guess I will have to keep my other Selectrics... sigh. Twas gonna be a space saver...
It is cool as hell though. And so tiny!
