Carbon ribbon, 11" platen, 8.5 " writing line, 12 cpi.
This machine came to me disassembled in a box. It is date-stamped October 1968 inside the case. Although this model doesn't have correction, clear adhesive tape will lift-off incorrect letters when used with a correctable ribbon.

Status: Typewriter Hunter
I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
