I was fortunate enough to find this in a secondhand shop in Lodi, CA. Actually, my husband found it. I didn't think I was interested when I saw the case, because it looked like the other SCM typewriters I already have enough of, but then I saw SEARS on the front above the lock, and thought, "Hey... let's see what we've got here... That case opened, and I saw this beautiful, black, white, red, and cream beauty staring at me. I tried it out and WOW! It was amazingly pleasant to type on. The feel, and the sound... aaahhh love at first type!
