from eBay. Came with nylon ribbon. Works well, except for a lingering issue with the backspace key. Cosmetically in good shape.

I'm happy to own 17 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).
I used my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year till it mysteriously bit the dust early in 2020. I use my Selectric I a lot since it fits perfectly on my antique typewriter desk. Some of the manuals are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the IBM Selectric I on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the IBM Serial Number page and the IBM Selectric I By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
