Beautiful and complete, just lacks the celluloid ribbon (I owe you a typeface specimen sample with carbon paper). Once engaged to mains, it operates smoothly with a delicious hum, and all the keys and the carriage operates as expected. Is a testimony of half century ago technology at its best (fifty years ago this typewriter was state of the art business gear).
