1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 27-6705-93-5079047 1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter, Serial # 27-6705-93-5079047 David Aragon's 1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter. 2018-01-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Aragon: 1981 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 27-6705-93-5079047 Got it from a Craigslist seller from Santa Fe, NM. Came with extra ribbons, a cover and the typing element that came with it was Manifold.

Has a bit of firm leys, and originally had a return problem that went away with a bit of use and cleaning.

What surprised me was the date stamps on the body and motor, I thought this was just going to be another average Selectric, but to my surprise it's fairly old for III.

The platen still has a bit of it's original surface and the paper rollers still feel quite soft.

It's a joy to type on, but need different elements.
