Model MV87238

Very odd duck of a machine.

Daisy wheel. All electronic. Strange aesthetics.

Has correction ribbon. Memory and correction for at least the last word (press and hold Correction button)

Top closes up nicely. Very clean inside.

Large plastic, vacuum-formed, double-walled SCM case.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
