1896 Smith Premier 2 Serial # 8334 1896 Smith Premier 2 typewriter, Serial # 8334 rock harris's 1896 Smith Premier 2 typewriter. 2015-01-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1896 Smith Premier 2 Serial # 8334 So I bought this from a friend who loves old technology, but not typewriters.

I was made a lot earlier than I thought. According to this, it was one of the first thousand!

It works well enough, but I have as yet put in a ribbon. As with all these old machines, it uses the one inch ribbon, which I have, but just haven't yet rewound it.

Laziness....

I absolutely love the double keyboard. Such a cool look.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
