1904 Fox 3 Serial # 10465 1904 Fox 3 typewriter, Serial # 10465 Jessica Winkowski's 1904 Fox 3 typewriter. 2018-10-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1904 Fox 3 Serial # 10465 Purchased 10/6/2018

A sad, sad Fox. Missing the majority of the carriage assembly, the space bar, and three type slugs (among other things; those are the most obvious).

I picked this up hoping that when I get around to restoring my No. 4, I can pull parts from this one. It's very sad that this one will never type again, especially considering it has an italic font.

While the front "The Fox" decal has suffered, the decals on the sides are in surprisingly good shape. It is also still attached to the original wooden base, though I don't have the top cover.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010. I currently have 100+ machines in my possession. A little over half of them reside in my "personal" collection, while the rest are machines I intend to clean up for sale, or are long-term restoration projects (I'm looking at you, Olivers and Foxes!).



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Fox 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Fox Serial Number page and the Fox 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
