100% operational 1983 (33-year-old) Atari 1029 Dot Matrix Printer and Manual

This unit prints a fairly faded text and comes with a gracefully yellowed A5 instruction booklet or " manual " with TWO (2x) steel staples to bind the 50 silky pages and is cleverly entitled " Atari Programmable Printer 1029 ". The incorporated text speaks of crazed and eclectic words beyond understanding. For example, " Escape Codes, Elongated Characters, CHR$(nn) Function and Sprocket pins " to name a few

This actual unit can be seen in full operation on youtube - Footage filmed 2-8-2016. This was filmed with the test mode switch enabled and powered on. As we no longer have any tractor fed paper we used standard A4
