Why does this serial number have an extra letter?
The keys are very sticky (see type sample), the left knob is about to fall off, and sometimes you meet the nicest people through the web...

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane�...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
