VTS Opinion of Use: Usable, unique thrust action writing machine from 1897 and in beautiful condition! Very hard to find in this condition! Imagine writing letters to friends or family on a typewriter that's 121 years old! Can you write a novel on it? Yes! Would you want to? Probably not. However, it's very snappy and a lot of fun to type on. I have a customer from Seattle that bought one from me back in 2006. Still uses it regularly! Amazing to think of something so old still working exactly as it as designed. If you want to separate yourself from the pack in a very unique way, pick this up! You won't be disappointed :-) This is a consignment piece. Please see VTS News for more information.   It has been fully degreased, cleaned, adjusted, oiled, tested and comes with a new ribbon installed. Over 3 hours of a hands on process performed over several days. It's ready to type right out of the box! Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions about this beautiful, original vintage typewriter or need more pictures :-)
