1976 Petite Super International Serial # none visible 1976 Petite Super International typewriter, Serial # none visible Darren Goossens's 1976 Petite Super International typewriter. 2021-02-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Darren Goossens: 1976 Petite Super International Serial # none visible Plasticky little toy. Only three rows of keys, and short rows at that. Left shift lifts carriage to give capitals, right shift depresses carriage to get other characters like question mark and brackets. Uses a 1/4" ribbon, so I had to scissor a few meters of an old ribbon lengthways. The type sample here uses that makeshift ribbon, so don't be too critical. It's not bad for a toy.
