This is the first 555 in the database. I saw Mark's sighting of the 565 and the comments. It was the same price and typed very well. I picked it up because I'm a sucker for electric typewriters that have all the working parts of the manual ones. ie return arm, manual carriage movement without power on ...
Made in Japan
Hunter: Geoff Flash (gflash)

"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.
Each day I mold young minds... by teaching art to high school students.
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.
