I really love that design. It's very ingenious, works really fast, and the printouts are very sharp with the polyethilene ribbons. To this day I use mine on a regular basis for work, and the forms filled with it still make a very good impression.

It's interesting that the design of the ball changed with time... I suppose this is the first version and it seems more solid than the plastic+metal tab design that seems not as durable :-)

Nice find!

I love the design of the original Selectric. My Selectric II looks more utilitarian, with less interesting lines -- but of course all the Selectric versions type beautifully!

I just love Selectrics. For me the best line of typewriters ever made...!
