1970’s Working Silver Reed SR180 De Luxe – New Ribbon, Case – Light Blue – Made In Japan
Working Silver Reed SR180 De Luxe vintage, petite, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the light blue machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This Japanese made typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is excellent. Minor signs of use and age are present.

Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Silver Reed typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
