This is a treasured memento of a wonderful time--but how does it type? It is decent--not my favorite for feel, but fine.
I've left the sticker on it that Amanda placed there--it makes me smile.
I need to fix the case zipper.

Typewriter user since childhood--"Endofthehall Press" (produced a magazine for my big sister, I did) and avid hunter for many years. Partial to portables/ultraportables, but do love my standard models too. I use my typewriters for letters, recipes, lists, stories, pondering, and in art/fabric creations.
