Oh Michelle, don't sell it! I've still got the typewriter I bought for about $50 to type up my second novel to send out in serial form to my friends and family. White-out, those little pieces of paper with dry white-out that you typed over, the IBM Selectric that had a correction tape integrated, onion-skinned erasable paper (yuck!), and that little eraser pencil with a pumice eraser and the little broom on the end. Those are all things the younger generation has probably never seen or heard of (well, white out yes, they use it to correct their homework and notes where I live! Always had to prohibit its use in class, I wanted to see their mistakes and corrections and they often used it as an excuse to wait for it to dry before continuing any exercise....) And, can you believe it, I've had younger students ask me (seriously!) just what a typewriter is! Pity. I loved my first, a massive, black (and extremely heavy) Underwood typewriter that I fixed myself. I tended to type too fast for it, though, and the keys always got stuck. Best typewriter ever made? That IBM Selectric with the interchangeable ball element. Great machine. peace, revel.
