This is a rare Munson No. 3, which concluded the Munson line of typewriters. Serials for the Munson No. 3 ran from approximately 9650 to 11000, so this was among the earliest ones produced. In 1898 the production rights were sold to Edgar A. Hill, who founded the Chicago Writing Machines Co. The Munson No. 3 was slightly changed and rebranded as the Chicago.
