1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 6700 11 0054523 1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter, Serial # 6700 11 0054523 Clark Hinson's 1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter. 2017-07-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 1984 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 6700 11 0054523 A 13" Single-pitch Correcting Selectric III. It's a 12-cpi model. This machine has the standard margin scale that doesn't light up. I repaired this for a government office.

The smaller 13" models aren't that common, so I thought I'd upload this one for posterity.

Date stamps in the covers show August 1984, so I'm thinking it was assembled late 1984 or early 1985. No install date sticker or service record.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
