19XX IMC Type choice de luxe Serial # F188484 19XX IMC Type choice de luxe typewriter, Serial # F188484 Richard Wood's 19XX IMC Type choice de luxe typewriter. 2016-12-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Wood: 19XX IMC Type choice de luxe Serial # F188484 Bought by my father in law in 80's/90's not sure.

It is at the very bottom of the cheapness pile.

The touch isn't bad but the spacebar has no padding so makes a hard crack as it hits the bottom plastic case.

Carriage shifted (pretty light one). If you lift the carriage return lever, the carriage lifts too!

Doesn't have a right margin setting or a bell!

Would be ok for a child

Typewriter collector, previous sewing machine collector.

Originally from the Garden of England, Kent. I have lived in Sheffield for over fifteen years.

As a young child, I always enjoyed taking things apart and seeing how they functioned.

I have been collecting a range of vintage typewriters for over two years.

Previously, I was interested in restoring sewing machines, then I acquired my mothers Olivetti Dora and looked under the hood and typed, I was hooked on typewriters and how they worked.

I learn something every day from passionate bloggers and typewriter enthusiasts.

Fan of Joe Van Cleave's typewriter video series.
