I was pretty excited to find this one at Goodwill. My other used to have one of these sitting on the shelf in her closet. It held a special fascination because she only took it out to write the occasional letter.

It turns out it was also the model my wife learned on.

This one has a decent case (except for the cheap twine substituting for a handle.)
