The touch is so light on this between the type heads and the platen that it doesn't make the best impression unless fairly thick paper is used. Whether this is due to an aged platen (like granite) or some maladjustment is hard to say. It is pretty easy on the eyes though. Back-story: I collected this one from a large old house in the Manchester suburbs. It turns out that it used to belong to the seller's late aunt: the story goes that this typewriter was originally bought by a very (very - there's a University named after him) successful businessman for his secretary/lover. Some say it with roses - a beautiful typewriter is so much more practical!

I'm an opportunistic collector and user. Yep, I have a habit, but I'm in control, OK?
