I came across this Reliance Premier (my something else)… a week before the Woodstock; and almost one week after the Woodstock the Premier arrives. USPS slow but arrived in perfect shape. When I did research on this typewriter I visited the Yahoo Typewriter Forum and found a post from 2004 entitled “Reliance Premier / typewriter desecration” about someone cutting off the keys… and selling them separate from the typewriter… I thought I could save this machine from such a fate.
My understanding is that only 12,000 of these machines were ever made. Someone kept this one in great shape.
