1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 6705 11 4405086 1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter, Serial # 6705 11 4405086 Brenton Beck's 1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter. 2023-05-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brenton Beck: 1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 6705 11 4405086 This is my first Selectric, and easily the machine I've done the most to, (to date.)
I acquired this off of Marketplace from a church about an hour west of me that was going to throw it away if it didn't sell. I used this to jump right in to doing my own cleaning, repair, and adjustment of one of these pieces of engineering.

I have since obtained a bunch of font balls, but the one it came with, is the type sample.
