1893 Blickensderfer 5 Serial # 5095 1893 Blickensderfer 5 typewriter, Serial # 5095 Jonathan Mitchell's 1893 Blickensderfer 5 typewriter. 2017-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Mitchell: 1893 Blickensderfer 5 Serial # 5095 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.
