1979 Silver Reed Electric 8700 Serial # 92680800 1979 Silver Reed Electric 8700 typewriter, Serial # 92680800 Geoff Flash's 1979 Silver Reed Electric 8700 typewriter. 2024-02-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1979 Silver Reed Electric 8700 Serial # 92680800 #710

At least the front says "Electric 8700" and matches the little sticker on the back that says "Electric 8700"...
I don't own it because it doesn't work and they wanted $45.00...???
I bought my first typewriter (Olympia SF, script, $6.99) at this same Salvation Army, over 40 years ago. My, how things have changed...

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane"...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
No matter how many typewriters I am fortunate to be able to collect, my collection will not be as nice as Herman's...
