1923 Hammond Multiplex Folding Serial # F237948 1923 Hammond Multiplex Folding typewriter, Serial # F237948 Mark Schrad's 1923 Hammond Multiplex Folding typewriter. 2021-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1923 Hammond Multiplex Folding Serial # F237948 Just before the Covid-19 lockdown, in March 2020 I scurried across the Delaware River to pick up this 1923 aluminum folding Hammond Multiplex in Marlton, New Jersey. It was in pretty sad shape. No spool covers, no case lid. But it is oh so lightweight! So with the lockdown, I disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled it, bringing it back to working order. Still needs spool covers and a lid, though.
