Working 1980s Silver Reed SR10 Portable Typewriter – Original Sky Blue Colour – New Ribbon, Case – Made In Japan
Working Silver Reed SR10 portable typewriter in London (U.K.).
The Japanese made typewriter was manufactured in the 1980s. It has original sky blue colour.
The Silver Reed works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and light making typing on it effortless and enjoyable. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon colour switch, the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended.
The machine is fitted with a new black ribbon so it is ready for immediate use. Also comes with the case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is very good. The keys type well and do not stick. Very minor signs and age of use are present. Please note that the case had a crack at the back, which has been repaired.
The Silver Reed SR10 would be ideal for a traveller as it is small in size and light in weight. The typewriter could be a starting point for a typewriter novice. It would also be a unique gift. It appeals to all generations.
