Macchina in buono stato meccanico vista anche la peculiarità. Danno non troppo grave non dichiarato in fase di vendita ripagato in parte dal servizio e dalla gentilezza.

I purchased this typewriter as a gift for someone and it arrived it perfect condition. Christian also included a cover for the typewriter and asked if I wanted a message/name put on. It arrived about 6 days after I ordered, so very fast for a delivery from Italy to Ireland. Very happy with the purchase, would order from Christian again
