    Very nice machine. The type looks fine. Perhaps just a cleaning with a stiff tooth or finger nail cleaning brush will be all that is needed. I’ve seen several of these around although I never used one. The first typewriter I ever owned was an IBM Selectric-II I found at a flea market. I really enjoyed it. Now I prefer the manuals since no electric is needed to use them. I may just pick up an electric though.

      I do prefer manuals over electrics, but this one in particular is really like to type with. It has just the auditory feedback that my writing needs, and is perfect as a desk machine–no need to worry about finding a place to plug it in. For on-the-go writing or writing in bed/on couch, manuals are of course way better.

    I have one similar to this which was made in the mid-1960s. Yes, there *IS* something compelling about these SCM electrics. I don’t know quite what it is. Probably has something to do with serviceable, solid dependability made in the USA.

    We just acquired one just like this and having an AWFUL time getting the ribbon to work–yes, it’s the red/black and we KNOW it’s the right one. Just can’t figure out what we are doing wrong?? Can anyone help, please? Do not have the manual
