Brother CE-550

I replaced the CE-550 I bought late last year with a better one. The new machine comes with an instruction guide, paper guide, acoustic cover (albeit damaged) and anti-glare shield the other typewriter was missing.

It’s also less affected by yellowing overall, except for the front lip of the machine, which must have been exposed to sunlight while the cover was on – it’s a perfect candidate for the carefully targeted application of creme hydrogen peroxide (and more sunlight) …

The serial number D61333450 dates this CE-550 to April 1986, a month younger than the previous machine …
