Time for another safari this morning at the Ohio Valley Antique Mall.
'50s Smith-Corona Sterling with a broken pull cord, $40:
Oliver 5, with case but no base, frozen with rust, $45.
There was a nice new leather handle on the case, though.
Cute little Sewhandy. Hi, Adwoa!
Royal Academy, $18:
Smith-Corona Silent-Secretarial, $49:
Wide-carriage Royal KMM with replacement (?) green keys, $39
(sorry about the blurriness of these photos):
Airline radio, $24. If only it didn't have that big crack on top ... and if only I had shelf space ...
in some parallel world I am a radio collector!
Olivetti-Underwood Studio 44, $35. The typebars on left and right are very sluggish and the ribbon cover doesn't fit -- it's as if it came from a similar, but not identical Studio 44.
Smith-Corona Corsair, $59:
Tom Thumb, $30 (there were 3 similar ones):
Wide-carriage Olympia SG1, $49:
Olympia SG3, rusty, no price shown:
In the end, I didn't buy any of these. Would you?
(I see you, Ton, looking at that Studio 44. I would have bought it if that cover had fit!)
