New ribbon costs £4.95 including postage and will last you a long time . To give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months .

There are a few very small hard to see marks , some small paint touch ups and the silver chrome work is also in a very good condition with just some minor wear in places .

The typewriter comes with a case which is in a good functional condition with both the wooden structure and the covering of the case in a good order with just a few marks and signs of wear .It has a leather handle and the metal clasp to close . The silver chrome work on the latch and handle shows signs of wear but is fully functional.
