1904 Williams Academy Serial # 16576 1904 Williams Academy typewriter, Serial # 16576 Ryan Wright's 1904 Williams Academy typewriter. 2019-01-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan Wright: 1904 Williams Academy Serial # 16576 The Williams Academy appears to be based on the Williams 2. The Academy model was designed for students at a more economical price.

This machine was formally owned by FN (A Typewriter Hunter) who purchased it from the Tilman Elster estate a number of years ago, according to his/her listing.

I purchased it from an EBay listing in Logrono Spain.
When it arrived from its long journey to America it had fresh paint in many areas- which I removed.

'ACADEMY' once appeared on the back area of the 'grasshopper legs'. All that remains is faded paint where the decal once existed. A photo could not pick up the shadow.

It is now in excellent condition considering its age and a through cleaning. I do not have the case.

It is currently my favorite typewriter in my collection.
