What happens when you bring a typewriter to a New Year’s Eve party

from the platen of my Eaton’s Prestige (aka Smith Corona Silent Super c. 1959)

purchased Dec 15, 2011

This typewriter was made like a tank! Plus it has every feature that was available, even the platen is removeable.

It sold for $119.50. I paid $20. In 1959 you could have purchased a Rolex watch for $100. I’m glad typewriters have not appreciated in value to that degree.
