|*I meant to say after I bought it, since it was listed buy-it-now.|
There was a time of about 25 hours between finding this and getting it delivered.
I love the tiny "De Luxe" decal
Age and experience doesn't necessarily make a better typewriter. I think the folding Portable 2 is actually more pleasant to use. I haven't yet used a Portable 3 to compare it with that.
I got the two out to compare, and there is definitely more going on than just a higher typebar housing. The angle of the type is higher, which explains the higher body. Kinda obvious!
