Serial #9431414

Found at a yard sale for $5, this early-70's 721 is 12-pitch and contains a Letter Gothic typeball. The plastic accents are Charcoal, so this completes my collection of accent colors available on this model: Charcoal, Grey and Electric Blue.

Motor's shot, stole the tilt tape for another machine and various springs and such. Parts machine now.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
