Previously in her family for over sixty years. Feet are almost completely gone, some of the keys are miscolored, and it appeared to have bugs living inside of it when I got it. Needs a good cleaning, new feet, and a fresh ribbon and she'll be ready to roll. Everything else seems to work great on it.
