1978 IBM Selectric I

Serial #21 0779737

This Selectric serial number starts with a zero (after the 21-) and that doesn't jive with anything I've looked up. Replaced the tab-return pulley, the velocity cable attachment bracket, and most importantly new ribbon and golf-ball.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
