1914 Emerson 3 Serial # 13518 1914 Emerson 3 typewriter, Serial # 13518 Mark Schrad's 1914 Emerson 3 typewriter. 2024-02-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1914 Emerson 3 Serial # 13518 I had long wanted an Emerson 3, so I jumped at the opportunity to get this one from Bob Aubert's collection of Delran, NJ back in August of 2023. A low priority, it sat on the workbench for ages, as I discovered more and more things gone wrong on it: cracked frame, cracked iron typebar cover, drawband, missing "A" slug, etc. etc. It took forever just to get it where it could put out a rudimentary type sample, and even then, not without a lot of coaxing. Fascinating machine to look at, all the same.
