|It's actually an attractive machine, or would be in better shape.|

|Not sure if those spools are special, I saved the other just in case.|
|Little bit of rust....|
|My favorite view of the Argyle, I like the chrome strip running along the edge. Also note the fold down carriage return lever.|
|More rust, yikes!|
|The case is in decent shape. And the zippers work too!|
It is Will Davis's page, Alan Seaver just hosts it beacause Will's main site is not really working.ReplyDelete
I've seen these a few times, and definitely am intrigued by their lines! But I've never bought one because I'd have to find it for $10 or so.
Not in the best of shape, but a rare machine nonetheless. Congratulations on the find! Craig's List is great for that kind of thing, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Also, those are by far the neatest ribbon spools I have ever seen. It's a shame that they are hidden by the ribbon cover. I would have to find an older machine with exposed ribbons for those spools. Better find than the typewriter! HA!
Ouch, that's some bad psoriasis. Neat typewriter design, though.ReplyDelete
I have added Nippo and the various brandings they were sold under to the Typewriter Database. Feel free to upload this example (:ReplyDelete
A rare find indeed, sorry it's not up to par in terms of condition.ReplyDelete
