1940’s Working Sterling Continental Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Germany
Working Sterling Continental vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. The German made machine works very well! The comfortable glass keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, the bell, the shift keys, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever and the paper release lever all work as intended. This stunning typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case.
The overall condition is good! The letter keys type well but some keys stick. There was an issue with the ribbon reverse mechanism that got fixed and feeding the paper in can sometimes require special attention. Other signs of use and age are present.
