The Typewriter Database 189x Daugherty Visible Serial # Unknown From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Royal Taylor: 189x Daugherty Visible Serial # Unknown We rescued this great old machine from the attic of a home near were it was built! Unfortunately that was 2 years ago and I can't find most of the information on it including the serial number.

However, we do still have the photos!

The plate under the keyboard has patent dates in 1891 and 1892 so our assumption is that this was made during the 1890s.

It was a truly modular machine with the entire keyboard assembly able to be removed by just 2 screws as seen in one of the photos.

Oh, and don't miss the demo video below.

We had a reply from a family member of James Daugherty, the inventor of this great machine. He states that the QWERTY keyboard was made to include the last four letters of the Family name Daugherty. I have ready contrasting opinions on where the QWERTY keyboard came from, but this is his a fun version!
