The Typewriter Database 1896 Franklin New Franklin Serial # 5509 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1896 Franklin New Franklin Serial # 5509 This one came into my collection early (ca. 1996) and it was quite a thrill. The New Franklin is not such an easy model to find, even in the eBay era.

Franklins use geared typebars that strike down from the front.
