Wow! $235, that's a lot. I will have to conquer my fear and step inside my basement. Fortune is waiting :)

I used a non-electric, which I bought for about $75, new in 1990 from a shop in Berkeley, on my way to work in China's Heilongjiang province.
I actually used it to write some letters to my philosophy professor at Berkeley and corresponded with some others. I also typed a couple of storied on it which I sold to AsiaWeek magazine of Hong Kong.
On my way back to 1991, my manager in the office that was hosting me at China National Petroleum Company, purchased the typewriter for 3/4 of the price.
It was very slick and very light. It did need a ribbon.
