1980’s Working Silver Reed Leader II – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Japan – Red
Working Silver Reed Leader II vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1980’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, ribbon selector (for the colour change), 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.
Please note that the typewriter is in the original red colour and has not been painted on recently.
Made in Japan.
