193X Burroughs 50 Serial # Not found 193X Burroughs 50 typewriter, Serial # Not found Jack B's 193X Burroughs 50 typewriter. 2020-09-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 193X Burroughs 50 Serial # Not found It is official, I am the worst at finding serial numbers in antique malls.

This Burroughs had me tempted, but on closer inspection it had many frozen and inoperable parts, the carriage and ribbon vibrator in particular. The culprit? Rust, of course.

For $75, it was high enough for me to pass it. Did I make the right choice? I know these aren't too common, and it was probably repairable...
