These things were not easy to type on. But this is similar to the typewriters I learned on. Would you believe there is no "Erase" button, no "Copy" or "Paste" button, no "Save" button and no way to change the color of the type unless you used a colored ribbon?
But if you could type 60 words per minute on one of these you were really good. I could do that. My mother taught me how when I was in the 9th grade. It was one of the best gifts she ever gave me!
