I am looking for someone to research and report on purchasable vintage typewriters. This typewriter must be in full working order with consumables (ribbon, etc.) reasonably available. Looking, preferably, for a model with something of a history of performance and ease of use. Also, it should look cool (I will leave "cool" up to your discretion), if possible.
Ideally, I would like a minimum of 10+ entries to choose from, including model history (incl. manufacturing date), price (incl. shipping costs), and where it can be purchased (online stores preferred, but not necessary as long as seller will ship). Also, please include where I can purchase ribbon for each model and at what price. If you write more than 10 entries, that's great and final payment will be reflected.
