1900 Smith Premier 2 Serial # 49173 1900 Smith Premier 2 typewriter, Serial # 49173 Ian Brumfield's 1900 Smith Premier 2 typewriter. 2015-11-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1900 Smith Premier 2 Serial # 49173 Bought this machine off of Mark Albrecht at the 8th annual Antique Typewriter Collector's Meeting. This machine is pretty rough and needs some work, but I believe that it is fixable. The machine happens to come along with the metal cover, but is sadly missing the wooden base board.

This is currently the oldest typewriter in my collection.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Premier 2 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Premier Serial Number page and the Smith Premier 2 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
