I've seen cheap typewriters. This one fights for the "Cheap Typewriter Gold Award", and you can surely bet for it. Really deserves the prize.
The basket and spools cover is made of a sheet of metal that makes you remember thirty years ago, where beer cans were made from brass. Well, that old beer cans were made from thicker brass, believe me!
The typewriter is a caps only no numbers, colored keys educational... toy? (I think is not intended to be a toy typewriter, but it is hardly more than a toy typewriter).
I was looking for one of these typewriter model for two reasons: they do exist and I want one, and (besides that) they have a flashy, eye catching look, with the black crinkle enamel contrasted with the colourful keytops.
And it even has a case... What more can I ask for?
