This was my first manual typewriter—I can't believe I haven't posted it here yet. It's gone through a lot during its years, enduring some mistreatment from me and other family members.

My grandma got it new and my father used it in college before he got a Macintosh Plus.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
