Michigan antique mall purchase. Don't like the feel of the plastic. Came with case. Maybe ribbon not quite right (see typeface sample). Looks like a pica typeface. Some keys sticking or slow to hit and rebound. I no longer own this machine.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
