Marked on the lids in raised plastic is a daisy border encircling the words "Xerox Electronic Typing System". The wheel consists of characters at the end of thin metal prongs in a circle around a metal center piece. There is a circle or grip tape reinforcing the metal prongs as they attach to the middle section. In the middle, printed in green on two of the three wheels, is "9R21102 Xerox Vintage 12". One of the wheels has "9R21011 Xerox Titan 10" printed in blue. At the center is a black metal knob.
