1963 IBM Selectric I

Serial #4088598

A 2-color Selectric ribbon? yes, and it works! The Model 72's, unlike the later Selectric II/III does not automatically move the ribbon up and down with each keystroke to cover the entire face of the ribbon. Instead, it has a 4-position selector lever hidden underneath the ball carrier. (top/middle/bottom/stencil)

Early 1960's IBM Selectric with scalloped body style and rare "Accent Blue" keys and trim. I call this one "The Blue Bomber"

10 Pitch

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.
