    I didn't buy it but I know that the person who originally owned it got it in the late 90's from the back seat of his taxi cab. He wrote on it because he felt that it resembled a typewriter because of its "constraining" quality but got bored and gave it to me a few years ago. (2004-5) I really enjoy writing with it, I kinda want to take it into Starbucks and watch peoples faces as I use it. :laugh:
