The Something else: Reliance Premier

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.
