1919 Century 10 Serial # HS90097 1919 Century 10 typewriter, Serial # HS90097 Mary Echevarria's 1919 Century 10 typewriter. 2015-07-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mary Echevarria: 1919 Century 10 Serial # HS90097 This American Writing Machine Co. Century 10 is an eBay purchase. According to the seller, the typewriter was part of building clean-out in an old part of St. Louis, MO.

The machine is compact, weighing about 17lbs. I love the size. It is a cousin of the Remington Junior (1914-1921).

The typewriter has distinctive tilted ribbon spools. It is a three-bank with a basket shift that shifts down for capital letters and up for figures.

This machine is sadly missing its paper table with the large “Century” decal. It is also missing its rear rubber feet and left ribbon crank handle. The paper release lever’s head is broken off.

It types splendidly.

The Century 10’s serial number is stamped inside the machine on a center bar under the basket.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Century 10 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Century Serial Number page and the Century 10 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
