Group typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us and cost $12.50 including postage . You can purchase any manual typewriter ribbon for this machine and rewind the new ribbon onto its original metal spools you can use two tone red and black ribbons on this machine as well as other colours .A ribbon will last you a long time . To give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would have lasted them around three months.
There are some very small marks to the paintwork and some minor discolouration in places, but generally it is in a very nice condition. It types well and has its original metal spools and fitted covers. The silver chrome work is also in a good condition. The typewriter measures 27cm by 30 cm and is 13 cm high.
It comes with its original wooden carry case with black covering which is also in a generally good condition . The original metal closure fitting was missing so we fashioned in leather a way of closing and fixing the case so it is functional.
This is a lovely 40's working typewriter in a great condition for its age with a nice typing action .
