My first typewriter and a favorite of mine. Only it tends to skip a space from moment to moment. I have yet to figure out why. I have made that a personal goal.

Hello and thank you for showing interest in my Typewriter Collection Galleries!
I have only been at this for about a year. However, Having struggled with health issues, while attempting to complete my doctorate in clinical psychology, I find this a great source of comfort and encouragement. Not everything that appears old and useless is indeed old and useless. The right person can always pick out the treasures behind the rust.
My interests started in a rather eclectic manner. And, it started much like it does for many of us. I wanted to get back to writing, and wanted to do it without all the high-tech mumbo-jumbo! I wanted a typewriter.
So, I set out on a bath to find one that worked for me, and that sent me toward first Royal and then Smith Corona. My first two usable typewriters were my Royal Arrow (SN:962522) and my Smith-Corona Portable (SN: 1C-2163). But, then I went crazy! Large ones, small ones, usable, or not... I loved them all!
Today, I try to keep myself down to about 25 or less in my collection. My primary focus is on portable typewriters manufactured between 1929 - 1965. And, my focus is mostly on European makes, especially those from Germany.
As for the perfect typewriter, for me? Well, I have a few. They are German made Olympia SM3s, SM4s, and an SM7 (newly acquired), as well as my Voss Privat, my Gossen Tippa-B, and my Brosettes. I guess I couldn't choose between them!
