Description:

Model 1A
Serial #2028811
Made in Canada
14 in. carriage

With a head on it like a Beluga whale, the Super-Speed isn't much to look at, but it's a natural performer. I particularly like the spring-loaded trap door covering its back end that allows for quick access to the escapement and drawband drum.

Several years ago I adopted a decidedly grass roots approach to my writing by shelving the laptop and dusting off an old typewriter. The change not only had a profound effect on how I work, it also renewed my interest in typewriters, and turned out to be the embryonic phase of what is now an ever-growing collection. [Typewriter collector located in Toronto, Canada, with a bias for mid-century models.]
