Please note that the typewriter for sale is only slightly cosmetically different to the one in the photos – the decals are in better condition.
Other than that, the overall condition is very good, the keys type well and the carriage moves smoothly. I have oiled and tested all of the keys however some might be sticky at first. Other minor signs of use and age are present.
