IBM Correcting Selectric II Typewriter

While walking around work, I came across this 1973 beauty. It is an IBM Correcting Selectric II. Not sure if it still works or not, but still takes me back to the days in school having to work on reports with a typewriter my mom had that was much like this one.

    Looks like the typewriter I had, but maybe this one is a lttle earlier. Did it have the interchangeable balls to change type font?

    I had one of these in college, and I loved it. I wrote hundreds of letters and dozens of papers, and it was a real nice machine to work with, back in the day. I’m not sure if you can still get supplies (ribbons, correction ribbons, or typeface elements – those ball things) but I sometimes see these at thrift stores.
