This 1970's Brother isn't perfect, but don't let that put you off from choosing it as your typing companion! The "repeat spacer" button in finicky, the keys have yellowed a bit with age (a common occurrence which doesn't affect function) and there are a few paint chips that are indicative of its journey. It's been taken apart, fully cleaned and serviced and comes in its original blue zippered vinyl case with a handle that extends into a shoulder strap. which is also in great shape! With a brand new ribbon installed, this machine is ready to travel.
