I love the colour of this typewriter so much - it photographs wonderfully in natural light and is always my first recommendation when I'm lending out typewriters for photoshoots. On top of that it's not at all bad to use. The big bulky curves of the machine belie the tiny font size.
P.S. Do alignment problems sometimes appear spontaneously? This has just been in storage since I last used it, and it hasn't even been touched let alone dropped or banged, and it most certainly wasn't this out of alignment last time I used it!
Sold May 2019.
