Condition Report:

• Overall this typewriter is in very good condition for it's age and fully-functioning, though there is some slight wear from age, as per the images. • Note that the number 1 key is not missing. The manufacturers designed it for the upper case 'i' key to be used as a '1' as it has the same appearance, so that they could lower manufacturing costs as this key was effectively redundant. This can be noticed on many other typewriters of the early 1900s and some also have the zero key missing for the same reason - an uppercase 'o' could be used in it's place. • Has been serviced recently in but requires a new ribbon for further use. • The case is worn with age as per the images and is missing the key, but still holds strong and secures the typewriter well. Note the clasp can still be closed securely and reopened without the key, it just cant be locked. The case is also missing a handle.
