Make sure the ribbon is facing the correct side. Usually, there is a small encave which is to be facing downwards. Snap it in place and you are good to go.

You might try the office places (Office Depot, Staples, etc.). There are also online sources for ribbons. Here's one that came from a Google search for "typewriter ribbons". There were a few more, but this one had nice pictures.
Good luck with the hunt! Thanks for using Fixya.

Without a model or serial number I can't be sure, but if it is from the 50s it really doesn't have any "antique" value yet. Take care of it though.

In order to set the margins do this:
1. Using the backspace key, position the carrier on the exact point where the LEFT margin is to be.
If the LEFT margin is set before that point, just presss the MR (margin release) key once and continue backspacing.
2. Now press the Margin Left key once. (You may hear a short beep.)
3. Next, using the SPACEBAR, move the carrier to the right and position it where you want the RIGHT MARGIN, and press the Margin Right once. (You may hear a short beep.)
If the RIGHT margin is set before that point, just presss the MR (margin release) key once and continue with the SPACEBAR.
Now you can check by using the RETURN key to get to the left, and the TAB or SPACEBAR to get to the right.
Getting a User Manual may prove to be a challenge.
