The Typewriter Database 193X Burroughs Unknown Serial # 50A5748 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 193X Burroughs Unknown Serial # 50A5748 Non-electric model.

It's a beautiful machine, very solidly built ... except for a couple of ribbon mechanism gears, which are plastic and easily chipped. Does every typewriter have to have an Achilles' heel?
