189X Hammond 2 Serial # REMODEL 2549 189X Hammond 2 typewriter, Serial # REMODEL 2549 Mark Schrad's 189X Hammond 2 typewriter. 2022-11-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 189X Hammond 2 Serial # REMODEL 2549 This is either the first or the second of the Hammond 2 twins. This one is formerly of the Clark Collection, and was purchased from Tony Casillo in Garden City, NY, in October of 2022. With a good cleaning and maintenance, it types well enough, though it originally came with a universal shuttle, rather than an ideal one. Still, the figures on the shuttle used here do not line up with those on the keycaps, so I'll likely be on the hunt for a replacement shuttle.
