This beautifully preserved masterpiece is surprisingly one of my favorite typers. Its touch is perfect for my typing style, and in spite of the odd skip when typing too fast and furious, it produces beautiful output. The case is sumptuous and mint.
Problem with ribbon advance now repaired. My go-to typer for the moment!
Until there is clear evidence to the contrary, I'm going with the Database entry that shows pre-merger 44s of this number to be 1952. Somehow my gut tells me so! :-D
Status: Typewriter Hunter
From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
