1893 Blickensderfer 5

Serial #5095

Letter written on typewriter thanking Greg at www.antikeychop.com for his help in double checking the date.

Found it at an antique store in PA. It was missing the spring underneath it, but after replacing that it works fine. Very slow, but i've written notes and a few pages through it.

The serial number is 5025, which seems like a rather early model to just stumble upon in working condition, but whoever originally owned it took amazing care of it.

A writer and beginner collector/restorer of typewriters. I'd always written a few pages a day, been sort of a habit for a number of years now, and I saw a few typewriters in movies and loved the sound they made, so I decided to buy one to see what it was like.

Ended up with a Olivetti Lettera 22, and after writing about a hundred pages with it, I was hooked.
