The Typewriter Database 1956 AMC (Japy) Portable Serial # 222280 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1956 AMC (Japy) Portable Serial # 222280 eBay find. Neat case. Not the best typer. Clangs a bit like a Corsair, in my opinion. The return lever doesn't grab, so I had to manually move the page up. Looks nice, though. The serial number is under the keys on the left, around the S and D keys.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
