1902 Blickensderfer 5 Serial # 74400 1902 Blickensderfer 5 typewriter, Serial # 74400 Bryan Kruk's 1902 Blickensderfer 5 typewriter. 2014-07-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Bryan Kruk: 1902 Blickensderfer 5 Serial # 74400 This Blickensderfer No. 5 is in decent condition, and came with the wooden case not shown in the photos here. I'd consider it to be in working condition, but the ink roller needs to either be re-inked or I'd need to get a new one.
You have to note, though, the design that Blickensderfer used was just as wacky as most other mechanisms of the time, but it's actually pretty genius and compact. No wonder they used these on the electrics that came later!

This was my first Blickensderfer, and it certainly won't be my last.

I'm a 17 year old typewriter collector/dealer in Pennsylvania.
I bought my first typewriter, an Olympia SM4, from a church flea market when I was 11. Ever since, I've loved typewriters.

I sell the newer models on my website (typewriters101.com) but I also have a quite large collection that I've built up of about 75 typewriters which are not for sale.
The machines I sell are cleaned, oiled, and have new ribbons. It's definitely provided plenty of money for machines to buy for my collection. I hope to share many of my machines from my collection here.
