1960s Cole Steel (2 Series)
Up for sale is a beautiful Cole Steel typewriter which was made in West Germany during the 1960s. This model is one of my all time favorites for a few reasons. The Cole Steel looks amazing to start it off. It's very streamlined, and the lines on it are very smooth and attractive. Additionally, it types very nicely despite how lightweight and portable it is. Overall, this typewriter is in great condition, and it's 100% functional. If you want a smaller sized portable that's great for heavy and frequent use, then this is a really great option. The plastic case cracked at some point in time, and the previous owner taped it together in order to prevent more damage. Other than this, the typewriter is in near mint condition. Also keep in mind that this typewriter doesn't have a ribbon color selector other than black and stencil, so the red half of the ribbon can not be used.
