Smith Corona 1C Standard Portable Typewriter Repaired Adjusted Escapement Trip Balance Bar

Remington ten forty portable typewriter withcase, ribbon, manual works perfectly i hope you'll spend some time with the images of the specimen page, because this is what you most need to see if you plan to use this typewriter. Tinkering with and collecting typewriters has been a hobby for some 40 years, and I have enjoyed refurbishing several variants from this generation of Remingtons based on the famous Torpedo 18.
