1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 6705 605782 1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter, Serial # 6705 605782 Dalton Hutchins's 1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter. 2022-07-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dalton Hutchins: 1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 6705 605782 I picked up a Selectric II and III from a small business that had been around for the past 60 years. The III had been used up until 2017. They had a certain military document that had to be filled out, and it finally went digital 5 years ago. I replaced all of the foam, which turned out to be a sticky nightmare. It has a weird double space hiccup sometimes, almost like a certain spot of the space bar is sensitive. Not sure what the purpose of the light is, but it's got a cool 80's glow. The elements aren't as fragile as some of the earlier II's, and I'm on the hunt for Oriental and Calligraphy. The typeface specimen is Courier.
