Robert, Id be interested in the turquoise Oly SF and the black Corona 4 fixer-upper if you're willing to make an exception and ship them to the desert. I totally understand if you'd rather not. Contact me on G+.

Robert Messenger said...

Erik, can do. The only problem with the Corona 4 is a carriage one, mainspring and drawband. Nothing else. It's in good shape otherwise.

ZetiX said...

Here's a big THANK YOU for my future machine on this list! :)

Erik Jaros said...

Yay! I'll email you my particulars and you can let me know the price and payment details.

Brian Brumfield said...

Oh, Robert. I only wish that I lived closer. :-/ The Torpedo 18 is on my wish list. Then there's the Bantam, the Mercedes and Erika M, and ... and ... and... :-)

Best of luck culling the herd!

Nat said...

Hey Rob,
I'll email you a list of machines I'm wanting :)

- Nat

Spiderwebz said...

O dear... Zetix found another Kolibri! ;-)

But, dang, there are some nice treats in there. Even stuff that's on my list. But I'm afraid shipping is far over my budget.

ZetiX said...

@SpiderWebz: yeah! I'm already jumping up and down like a roo... (98%joy-2%impatience... or the other way around ;) ).

Hi Robert, I sent you a mail! -Pei

Cayce Anne said...

I have recently sent an email about two of the typewriters above and was wondering if I could also enquire about the Sears Courier. Thank you, hoping one of the three I'm interested in is still available.

Jessica Severin (jeshi) said...

Hi Robert, I am interested in one of your Gossen Tippa (orig or pilot) if they are still available.

Sebbles said...

Hi Robert,

I'm interested in one of the models listed here, if you are still selling them.

How would I go about contacting you?


Robert Messenger said...

Sorry, all gone!
