1970 IBM Model D Executive Serial # 008412B8 1970 IBM Model D Executive typewriter, Serial # 008412B8 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 1970 IBM Model D Executive typewriter. 2019-09-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1970 IBM Model D Executive Serial # 008412B8 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).
