Wonderful fluro red portable typewriter made for the British stationery firm W H Smith in Japan during the 1980's . These came in grey , blue and the red colour with the early ones being made in Japan and the later ones coming from Korea . This one was made in Japan and is in full working order , types well and we have given it a clean ,service , adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to take out of the box and start typing on . It has light grey keys and the WHSMITH logo on the front at the left side and the words " RED FOX " in the middle .
GR 9 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . They generally cost around $10 including postage . However 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 last them around 3 months .
The typewriter is in a very good general condition with just a few very small marks and some minor discolouration to the plastic body . It comes with a matching red plastic case which fits on over the top of the typewriter. It is also in a good condition with just a few marks and some discolouration in places . A crack to the back corner has been successfully glued and functions well.
