1933 Burroughs 50 Serial # 50A5748 1933 Burroughs 50 typewriter, Serial # 50A5748 Richard Polt's 1933 Burroughs 50 typewriter. 2020-09-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1933 Burroughs 50 Serial # 50A5748 Non-electric model.

It's a beautiful machine, very solidly built ... except for a couple of ribbon mechanism gears, which are plastic and easily chipped. Does every typewriter have to have an Achilles' heel?
