The Typewriter Database 197x IBM Selectric Composer Serial # 5022461 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 197x IBM Selectric Composer Serial # 5022461 This is a Composer I repaired/restored for a customer. It's labeled as a Model 6251. Not exactly sure about the age, but it appears to be early 1970's by the condition of the machine internally. It needed numerous repairs to correct previous unsuccessful repair attempts.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
