I saved this poor creature from the dumpster, this and two others that I traded for an inexpensive bottle of wine. The typewriter is pretty roached, feathered in deep layers of dust and even crumbling mouse turds, though there might still be a quality display piece underneath the grime. I might have to give it a bath, and I'm certainly not risking much if I do. The serial number was nigh impossible to read, especially the 4, which has faded almost entirely with age. I do believe I got the serial right, though after some restoration I might be able to divine otherwise.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
