193X Continental 35 Serial # R210603 193X Continental 35 typewriter, Serial # R210603 Brian Brumfield's 193X Continental 35 typewriter. 2014-12-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Brumfield: 193X Continental 35 Serial # R210603 Picked up in Columbus, from a guy who bought it from a pipe organ maker.

The typebars have a problem. Some will not return all the way down, and I have exhausted my ideas on the root cause.

If you press firmly on one typeslug, they all drop.

May have to ship this off to a professional.

Otherwise this is a near-mint machine. Incredible!

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
