Found this machine on Craigslist and bought it from a 20-something woman in Chicago. She bought it from an antique mall and had planned to use it for writing, but had never gotten around to it. If she had, she would have discovered that the machine skips pretty fiercely. On this same trip I procured a 1909 Royal Standard.
It came with the fingering chart, the Royal mark of quality, a touch typewriting coursebook, and an original brush.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 20, to boot!
In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.
I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.
