Took time for a quick de-tour on the commute to browse a large thrift store. On one shelf, spotted a black case that looked like it could contain a typewriter.
The case is made of hard plastic. Looking closer anyways to read the label - yes that's a typewriter.
Lifting up the lid to peek inside; yes it is indeed a typewriter. It is electric, plastic and all beige. A Smith-Corona C400 electric typewriter.
It's still plastic machines season here...
