This is one of the gifts I received for my birthday back in July... a truly vintage typewriter! And it's still functional! See the ribbon? And, it's green... my favorite color. No pithy 500-word commentary here... just a quick post to say "thank you" and "I can't wait to cozy up with some tea this autumn... and start typing away on this old beauty." P.S. Doesn't actor Tom Hanks collect vintage typewriters?
