The Typewriter Database 1940 L.C. Smith Super Speed Serial # 1A1623825-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Brumfield: 1940 L.C. Smith Super Speed Serial # 1A1623825-11 A machine that I bought sight-unseen, after being connected with the seller by Richard Polt. The machine was in Colorado and I am in Ohio, and shipping was not an option. As luck would have it, my mother-in-law lived near the seller, and she performed the physical transaction for me a few months before I would ever touch this typer. I just received it (11/24/2014) and I am thankful. It was a bit dusty, but cleaned right up. This was a well cared for typewriter that had a heap of sentimental value to the seller.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
