This 1971 Sears Electric 12 (rebadged Royal Apollo 12-GT) Serial #1981050 appears to have been hardly used and is ready to go! Don't knock a typebar electric until you've tried it. You will get a consistent imprint - no need to worry about hitting the keys the same way each time. This machine uses standard bichrome (black/red) ribbons which are easy to find. Just plug it in and let the creativity flow! Comes in original black case with original manual. Made in Japan.
Note: Some tarnish/rust on the chrome around the case handle, some scuffing on the black case, typewriter itself is near pristine and all functions work great!
