Original hard-sided case
dimensions: 17″ x 12″ x 5.5″
serial number: 6LE2-144558

Good beginner typewriter. It types very well and is beautiful. But it does only type lowercase. So this is great for kids! Also, wonderful for journaling or letters.
Please watch the demo video to see how nice it types and look at the photos to see how beautiful it is.

Please note: Missing the carriage handle on the left side. Shift does not work so it only types in lowercase.

We recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad to keep the typewriter from scooting across the table.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs! There are no known issues. This uses a Universal Typewriter ribbon, 2-colors. A new black/red ribbon is installed for you. An extra ribbon can be added to your order (Option 2) and future replacement ribbons may be purchased here on Etsy or on our website at www.jotandtittletypewriters.com
