A Typewriterly Update

Post-Script: Below is a photo of the Mead paper's front label, for those curious. And here's the link to the product on Amazon. Note the difference in packaging (particularly the label) between what was advertised and what I received. If you find this paper less expensive somewhere else (keeping in mind shipping), please let us know.

Doing a bit more online research, the same paper is sold through Walmart's online store, with the current "sale" price about a buck less than on Amazon. Other sites also list this paper.

Then, on Sears' online store it's priced at about $4.

Interesting keyboard. I think it's a variant of the British keyboard. An Italian keyboard would need a grave accent even it didn't have the typical QZERTY layout.

Further searching shows this paper can be ordered online from Staples (and shipped to your local store for free), in 6-packs of 100 sheets each, for about $4 per pack. That might be the most economical way to acquire this in volume.

Better yet, if you have a Staples Reward Card they will ship to your home or office at no charge. The rewards costs you nothing, just sign up for it. Great for last minute gift for someone out of town. Often, you will get the shipment the next day. If not available locally, they will ship from the nearest warehouse with stock. At $20 a ream, that is sort of expensive paper.

Yes, that symbol can be used for both British pounds and Italian lire). Whereas the same symbol but with two parallel bars instead of one was exclusively used to denote British pounds. (this according to the RanRo 1928-med_OCR "Typefabrik" PDF I downloaded via Georg Sommereger's blog).
