1960s Commodore Educator
Up for sale is an uncommon Commodore Educator which was made in Canada sometime in the 1960s. Despite this machine's cheap appearance, this typewriter is a decent typewriter to type with, and is fully functional. The platen knobs appear to be either modified or missing, however the metal ends can still be used to easily serve the same purpose. This typewriter has a small crack on the rear of the plastic body, however it has been super-glued back together and is holding secure. Care is needed when pulling this machine out of the leather case, because it's a tight fit. The case is in good shape overall, however the zipper handle is missing. The zipper can still be moved pretty easily, in part because the zipper's teeth are all in great shape.
As I've mentioned, this typewriter does work rather well despite its size and cheap looks. This machine is extremely easy to use and care for, and uses universal ribbons, however it can only use single-color ribbons.

If you're a writer on a budget looking for a reliable typer, or if you're a parent looking for a typewriter to buy your child, then this is an excellent option.
