Sound test:

u/josefquevedo found this IBM Selectric Typewriter Model 1 on craigslist for $90 in excellent working condition. The model 1 was released in 1961, and is pretty rare nowadays; especially if it works!

All the keys work, and it feels so awesome to type on. The feeling is hard to describe, but it feels like your fingers are punching the paper itself with all of the letters being typed.
