At London Typewriters we hold stock and would like to offer for sale original metal spools, with a new black ink ribbon, for your typewriter.
These spools are no longer in production and they are valuable items. So, if you wish to give your typewriter a truly complete authentic vintage look then the original metal spools are a ‘must have’ item.

However, I cannot 100% guarantee that the spools will fit as some typewriters have slight variations in the fitting. If the spools do not fit your typewriter, I would recommend “re-spooling” the new ink ribbon onto the old spools, it is a straightforward process and doesn’t take longer than 5 minutes.
Disclaimer: please note that because these are the original metal spools, there might be some signs of use and age. You will receive the exact 1001FN configuration pair of spools, however the design might vary slightly to the one featured in the photo.
