Working Silver Reed 500 Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Extra Wide Carriage – Made in Japan
Working Silver Reed 500 vintage, 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 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, the carriage release lever and the paper release lever all work as intended. This slim, Japanese made 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 which has a comfortable handle.
The Silver Reed 500 has an extra wide carriage, enabling the typist to type on a landscape format of A4 paper. This solid machine can also take in thicker paper as well as different sizes.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the keys work as expected and the machine types well. Minor signs of use and age are present.
Made in Japan.
The green Silver Reed typewriter is located in London, UK.
