1970’s Silver-Reed Silverette 2 Vintage Manual Typewriter
Working Silver-Reed Silverette 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.
Some of the features of this vintage typewriter include:
- Slim design and light weight
- Reliable case and very portable
- Pleasurable typing experience
The overall condition is excellent. The key action is great and only 1 key sticks – the one with a dot in the middle, which is not necessary for every day typing. Minor cosmetic signs of use are visible but are very minimal.
The green retro typewriter is located in London, UK.
