1905 Monarch 1 Serial # 8705 1905 Monarch 1 typewriter, Serial # 8705 Crystal Carney's 1905 Monarch 1 typewriter. 2022-01-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Crystal Carney: 1905 Monarch 1 Serial # 8705 Bought this from a woman in Spokane, WA who had blue hair. She’s a friend of a friend who found this among an estate sale she was helping to manage. She said it belonged to her father and guessed that he’d inherited it from his mother.

It’s got quite a bit of rust and looks as though it had been home to a good many spiders at one time.

I think I’ll call her Llolth.

Let the resoration begin.

I’m a mother, writer, editor, cosplayer, knitter, martial artist, reader, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, poet, black sheep, college graduate, artist, gamer, big damn browncoat, and typewriter tinkerer. There's little more satisfying than finding a typewriter in bad shape and bringing her back to life.
