1906 Postal 5 Serial # 25422 1906 Postal 5 typewriter, Serial # 25422 Maxim Suravegin's 1906 Postal 5 typewriter. 2017-05-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Maxim Suravegin: 1906 Postal 5 Serial # 25422 The Postal seems like a cross breed between the Blickensderfer and the Hammond. The machine had a typewheel almost identical to the Blick and the way it turned was controlled by a series of upright pins, similar to the Hammond turret.

The Postal printed through a ribbon, that was fixed to two parallel ribbon spools, right behind the platen. With the typewheel striking down onto the platen, with the ribbon under it, the writing was in effect invisible.

There are said to be 8 different models of the Postal, but in fact only three have been reported, of which the number 7 is very rare.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Postal 5 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Postal Serial Number page and the Postal 5 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
