This L C Smith Secretarial Typewriter is in extremely good, near mint vintage condition. The typewriter does work, and all keys function as they should. The ribbon in the typewriter still works (though is faint). The typewriter shows very little wear. The printing on the back of the typewriter is still legible, but some of it has rubbed areas, as shown. The keys are all firmly attached and are in very good condition. "S-2-8B" is embossed inside the typewriter frame on the bottom. While this typewriter was briefly tested and appears to be functional, we are not typewriter experts and are selling this typewriter as is.
