I bought this locally from a woman who used to live down the street from me and who had typed all of her university papers on it. It's in good condition, though it needs a new ribbon. A little soap and water and it was as good as new. You don't see many of these in these parts. FYI the serial number is to the right of the right ribbon spool, hard to see as it's etched black on black.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
The serial is difficult to spot. It's to the right of the right ribbon spool.
