I found this in Elkhart, Indiana. It was in pretty good shape except for a detached drawstring, which I repaired. The date is an estimate.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
