OtherI turned down a typewrite on my list.
It was a $10.25 Underwood Touchmaster.
Okay, there's a backstory here that I should explain.
First, I'm moving in a few weeks, and I don't know how much space I'll have in my new place. Having never seen a TM in person, I didn't realize just how HUGE they are. I have no clue where I'd put it, not to mention even getting it moved.
Second, I only had $10 with me and didn't want to bum money off my mom. (I heart girls antiquing trips though!)
Third: The TM was sitting outside on a table. It wasn't covered, and if the smell off a Sterling I opened was any indication (by the way, what is it with Utah and baby poop brown Sterlings in the tweedish cases?), as well as the fading on the price tag, it'd been out there, and who knows what it'd seen. I've had enough with fixeruppers... So I passed it up.
Sure, some of me is regretting it, because the action seemed to work and the parts were moving.
But, I think that I'm going to stick to portables right now.
Oh, and in other sightings news:
Couple of standard Royals.
Old Underwood Standard.
Two baby poop brown SC Sterlings
And, at my local shop, a cute 30s Corona Four... Was tempted by it, but I don't know if it works, and money is my limiting factor right now.
Well, sorry for not getting pictures of any of these, but it's been a fun few days! Gotta love summer!
