The Typewriter Database 1909* Bennett Pocket Model Serial # 15172 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1909* Bennett Pocket Model Serial # 15172 From the collection of Bill Wahl, a 1909-ish Bennet. The patents painted on the inside floorplate run from 1902 to 1908, and there's a stamped seal that indicates US Patent in 1901. The serial number on a Bennett is a vanishingly tiny number stamped on the right side of the frame just below the right platen knob.

The Bennett is actually a pretty well-built machine despite its lightweight construction. The simplicity of its mechanical operation is interesting to behold.
