Surprise, surprise! When I read my e-mails upon my return, I won! And it didn't even go as high as my max bid. I can't save the photo from the e-bay listing, but will post here as soon as I receive it (probably about a week). It's a cute black Remington manual portable and looks like it's about a 1920's or 1930's machine. Now to find a ribbon for it. If anyone out there knows where to look, the model # is NM52739.
I'm giddy, but my husband just doesn't get it. He asked "what are you going to do with that?" and I said "type!"
