The New Typestyle

The old typewriter, a Coronamatic 1200 with #77 typeface, has worn out after eight years. After looking vainly for a better SCM typewriter with the sane typeface, I bought this one, Sears Electronic Communicator 2, and one month later found the one I was originally looking for. The future is up in the air.
