1913 Blickensderfer 5

Serial #174035

emblem and type ball

In good shape, I still need to clean it. Got it for Christmas in 2012 from my brother who worked in Stamford, CT at the time.
Machine came with a bunch of extras including tweezers and an extra type ball. And a pretty neat Instructions and Care note.

I live in Orange County, California with a wife and 2 sons, I have 50+ machines, my favorite brands are probably Olympia and Voss for their engineering but I've also got a thing for Olivetti for its style. Nothing too unique there. Nowadays however, I'm into 1930s and 1940s glass-topped machines and I am increasing my education on those brands and models. I think this site will help. Thanks to Ted Munk!
