Updated the ribbon spools, it appears that the make shift metal spool was just that. Sleeves and collars were present after taking the ribbon off, cleaned it all up and these make all the difference.
Such a sweet find, unusual ribbon spool stand, machine in as found condition - excellent working condition. Serial number in two places

I hate to use the expression "Treasure Hunter" But it fit's, and that's what I do. My wife calls it a problem, I can think of a lot worst things to do in my spare time. Antiques have always been part of my life, they keep you grounded and keep you in touch with the old days of hard work, ingenuity and craftsmanship. I'm kinda old to get started into this new hobby, but when I jump in, I'm all in…I have a lot to learn so be patient with me...
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hammond 1 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hammond Serial Number page and the Hammond 1 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
