Please look through all the pics and you can see how clean it is. None of the keys stick. They all move freely & return quickly. The carriage moves as it should. The type is fairly clear.I haven't changed the ribbon (no idea how old it is) but it still has life in it. The typewriter has been kept in a dry place as it shows no sign of corrosion. The original crackle paintwork is intact and paintwork generally is excellent. For an 80 year old typewriter this is one of the best I have seen. If you want more info please message me. Please Note: For the typewriter to fit into the wooden box when folded, the platen. Knob on the right needs to be removed (1 screw).
