1896 Blickensderfer 5 Serial # 13090 1896 Blickensderfer 5 typewriter, Serial # 13090 Mark Schrad's 1896 Blickensderfer 5 typewriter. 2021-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1896 Blickensderfer 5 Serial # 13090 I had been looking for a Blickensderfer for many years, when a fellow collector traded this one to me at Herman's typewriter gathering in 2018. It is amazing to me that someone used this DHIATENSOR Blick 5 enough to actually wear out the key legends. It is in pretty good shape, except it is missing the arm for the ink pad. I occasionally use it with carbon paper, even though it is completely impractical.
