Typewriter, Silver Reed 280 with Uncommon Cubic Type Face

$342.00 USD

 A rarer portable Silver Reed 280 "Fast Spacer" model typewriter in full working order in a great retro orange colour with black keys and black trim. This one was made in Japan in the 1970's by Silver Seiko and types very well. It has the uncommon cubic type face in the slightly larger  "pica" size giving you 10 letters to the inch as well as various accented keys.

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.

We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons from £6.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options. You would then need to rewind the new ribbon onto the spools in the machine.

The typewriter is in a very good general condition, with just some very small marks to the paintwork on the metal body. It comes with a black plastic case which fits on over the top of the typewriter. It  is also in a good functional condition with just some minor marks and scratches. The handle and clips work well.

We also include a photo copy of an original instruction booklet.

This Silver Reed 280  measures 28 cm x 30 cm and is 8 cm high. This is a nice retro working typewriter in a very collectable colour and uncommon cubic type face.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
