This will soon be in the collection of my daughter, once her 22nd birthday comes around in October, 2018. She chose it from the website of George Blackman Vintage Typewriters in England, and it set me back Â£120.
I wasn't personally taken with the 70s vibe, especially having been a teenager during that period, but I was won over once I hit the keys. This is a well-made typer, in excellent condition - as close to mint as a 45-year old machine could be. My daughter is going to love it, and it will urge her on to correspond with her old man.
Elite 12 typeface. Complete with original carry case. Two-tone cream and blue casings, and red platen knobs :-)
