1965 Tippa 1. I had no idea it would be so light but should have thought so when total weight was around 10 lbs. Plastic exterior, but nice sturdy metal workings make it a delight to type upon. Looking forward to the replacement ribbon so I can do just that (sample type is with ribbon it came with).
The only thing "wrong" i can find is the space bar is slightly askew, as if the right side was hit more than the left. This is also my typing habit, so I hope I don't end up breaking the thing.

A long-time fan of all things typewriter, I am truly delighted with the friendly people I find in the typosphere. Thank you.
In collecting, I believe I am trying to make it up to myself having given away the loyal Smith Corona that got me through college. Guilt is a strange thing.
The machine count is over 25, now... mostly portables, and lots of orphaned machines, both manual and electric, given to me by family and friends.
