Purchased for $31 on eBay, I decided to get it because I had never seen one. Golden Shields are fairly rare themselves, but the Voyager model seems even more so. It's an all right typer and if it didn't skip so much I would like more. It is almost so ugly it's pretty and photos don't do the shiny metallic front-piece justice. It is gaudy to the max.
I no longer own this machine, I traded it with Gabe Burbano at the Chestnut Ridge Typewriter Collector Meeting in 2014.
