This was on my want list for a long time because I think they are gorgeous typewriters. The Davis brothers were gracious to ask me for a want list and rooted through some of their extra machines and this Zephyr was among the ones they kindly dug out for me which I bought for a super reasonable $20. It's in extremely good shape but for a worn left margin and some funky keys to the far right which are ones I hardly use anyhow. The Zephyr is much like a Skyriter in design and touch except that at least this particular model isn't quite as good. That being said it is still stupendous to type on and I am very glad to finally have one!
