1901 Sun 2 Serial # 13769 1901 Sun 2 typewriter, Serial # 13769 Mark Schrad's 1901 Sun 2 typewriter. 2023-05-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1901 Sun 2 Serial # 13769 A gorgeous specimen of a Sun 2--and very early (1901). This one is formerly of the Clark Family Collection, and came into my possession in April, 2023. In good cosmetic shape, it only took a good cleaning and exercise--and re-inking the roller and reservoir--to get it typing once again. Certainly a lot of fun to use, but not exactly for everyday use.
