The Typewriter Database 1985 IBM 6715 Serial # 0216980 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of E Morlang: 1985 IBM 6715 Serial # 0216980 My father bought me this typewriter when I went off to college. It was a beast of a machine then and still is today. I just had it professionally repaired, tuned-up and cleaned (the ribbon advancement wasn't working), and now it is running like-new. The keyboard on this just feels "right" when typing. The print quality on this is very crisp. I have been able to find several different font printwheels on ebay for a reasonable price, but they are not that common. I have 5 typewrtiers, and while this one does not have the charm of a manual, it is by far the best one to type on.
