197X IBM Selectric Composer Serial # 615-58017320 197X IBM Selectric Composer typewriter, Serial # 615-58017320 Otto Koponen's 197X IBM Selectric Composer typewriter. 2023-04-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Otto Koponen: 197X IBM Selectric Composer Serial # 615-58017320 Selectric 72 Composer Made in Netherlands. Got this from a friend who found it at a shop that used to service IBM Selectrics here in Finland. The machine turns on and spins the platen when pressing return but not much else. I suspect it's in dire need of cleaning and regreasing.

If anyone has a service and instruction manual for this model that would be greatly appreciated!
