The Typewriter Database 1962 R.C. Allen VisOmatic Serial # A-2211430-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1962 R.C. Allen VisOmatic Serial # A-2211430-11 After saying I had never typed on an RC Allen and wanted to try one a fellow collector was kind enough to make a generous offer on one of several he had collected. It arrived in good shape and is a visually pleasing typewriter with a lot of useful and solidly built features. At first the touch feels a little on the stiff side but like a KMG after typing a paragraph or two you hardly notice any stiffness. Definitely a workhorse and welcome addition to my collection.

This machine now resides with a very happy Roanoke College math professor, who appreciated the RC initials.
