This is my baby. The only flaws are cosmetic, and maybe that the tabs are fixed. No matter, though, since there is something about the action of these keys that feels right under my fingers.
As a rare self-indulgence, I bought a brown ribbon from Baco in St Louis. On cream paper, the ubiquitous Pica 10 font looks like something written in a classic movie.
Visible from close up, and only in the right light, there is a number scratched in the back cover. At some point, the previous owner marked her typewriter with her social security number. From this, I was able to identify her as something of an adventuress. Her husband was stationed in Japan during WWII, and they traveled the world, after that.
Curiously, the previously owner died in August of 2009 and I bought her Remington-Rand De Luxe Model 5 in November of the same year.
