198X Silver Reed 500 Serial # 20269394 198X Silver Reed 500 typewriter, Serial # 20269394 Steven Kuterescz's 198X Silver Reed 500 typewriter. 2014-10-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 198X Silver Reed 500 Serial # 20269394 This Japanese (circa 1984) plastic portable typewriter is a solid performer. It has an attractive Pica font, and a surprisingly snappy typing action. I've only ever seen green or white examples - both with a black plastic ribbon cover. The carriage assembly is metallic. This one has a wide carriage.
You could do a lot worse. You could also do better. See my entry for the Brother Deluxe 700T! SOLD

Perth, Western Australia. The best place in the world to be during a pandemic. But not an ideal location for a typewriter collector. My collecting interests shifted from mechanical typewriters to electronic. Theres something about the daisy wheel I like and there are more design variations than you might think. Still have few mechanical and electric typewriters. Running out of physical space ... ;)
