WTB UK: IBM Selectric III 96 Character Typing Elements

Hello,

I am looking for some IBM Selectric III 96 character typing elements (UK layout).

I have an 'Artisan' 12 point typeball that needs replacing due to a damaged 'r' which leads to it printing incorrctly.

Would anybody here have any to offer?

Thank you!

What is the 4-digit code on the element underneath the top lever?
I may not have one, but that number is a sure way to get an exact replacement.

Hello,

Underneath the top lever the number is '3159 5'. There looks to be a space between the 9 and 5.

I'm not looking for any font in perticular, just something common and 12 point.

Unfortunately I cannot find any Selectric III typing elements here in the UK.

Oops, I forgot. Non-USA elements have 5 digits.
The entire part number for your element is 2431595, with the last 5 digits cast into the top of the element.
I have some Canadian elements for the Selectric III, but I'm not sure they would have all the same characters as your element. I have a Courier 10 & 12-pitch and Letter Gothic 12-pitch Canadian-English elements for the Selectric III.

My Selectric III is a 92-character machine (yours could be 92, 94 or 96, (the number of character keys doubled)), so it won't type all the characters on the element, but I'll type you a sample of all the keys I can if you are interested. I would take $10 each for them, plus shipping from the USA.

Here you go. My machine doesn't have the keys for the British Pound, Paragraph or superscript numbers, but they are present on the elements and will type if your machine has these keys.
