What's up with the black and not red space bar? Maybe it was replaced? I was certain the Mountain Scarlet Ashes came with a red spacebar...
In any case, my grandma bought it used in the 1960's, and threw it into the toy of in the 1980's, so, needless to say, there was much bending to do.
She just barely gave it to me for Christmas, and I have had to do quite a bit of repairs.

I am a typewriter collector and amateur repairman who became obsessed after typing at a young age on my grandfather's Olivetti Lettera 22, which he soon gave to me. Now I have had over ten typewriters in my collection, flipping the less valuable ones for a low price to fund my obsession.
At one point, I was weary of polish; now I see the wonderful shine that Meguiar's cleaning wax brings to a glossy paint. I still avoid polishing nickle or chrome, for I hear that patina is valuable on old metal. However, I refuse to use the devil's website, also known as Ebay. Just too many deaths by shipping...and unacceptably exuberant prices...
