Made by Brother for Sears. Derived from JP-10 electric with special cassette ribbon with black on top and correction white on bottom.
Similar to Brother Cassette Electric L10
Elite 12 typeface. Modern US keyboard layout.
Platen width 13 inches, with good rubber.
Plastic molded carry case of very good quality.
This is a very heavy machine, compared with similar era Smith-Corona.
Typing with very good key response and feels like a high quality machine.

Just the odd ribbon cassette detracts from being a desirable model.
BTW, has a paper injector that seems to be not working on this machine, will investigate later.
