1970’s Working Silver-Reed Silverette – New Ribbon, Case – Dark Blue – Made in Japan
Working Silver-Reed Silverette vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK in black. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the Silver-Reed 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 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 overall condition is excellent. The keys type well and the machine works as expected. Minor discoloration of the keys is present and the case has some paint marks. Please refer to the photos.
