Picked up this beauty for a mere $40 from a gentleman who just wanted it gone. Well oiled, types well. Only downside is some rust on the handle, but really, this is the bargain of the month for me.
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.
