The Typewriter Database 1976 Kmart (Brother) 300 Deluxe 12 Serial # C6989026 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1976 Kmart (Brother) 300 Deluxe 12 Serial # C6989026 This is a nice little machine cosmetically. Its typing leaves something to be desired, but it could just be the ribbon.

While I can't specifically date it, it is obvious from the case that it's from the 1980s. According to Alan Seaver's Machines of Loving Grace website, it's actually a rebadged Brother 750. He also says these are from the early 1980s.

THIS is why I am convinced it's from the 80s. This totally looks like then and not the 70s....

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
