195x VariTyper Composing Machine Serial # obliterated 195x VariTyper Composing Machine typewriter, Serial # obliterated Ted Munk's 195x VariTyper Composing Machine typewriter. 2023-10-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 195x VariTyper Composing Machine Serial # obliterated This is the non-proportional, non-justifying model of the Varityper - uses the monospaced shuttles like the Hammond. It works! Unfortunately, the model number and serial number plate was deliberately obliterated with an electric engraver - probably this was a "hot" machine at some point in its history. I *think* it's a Model 110, but I don't know for sure. Covers were not with the machine when found.
Escapement can be set to 10, 12, 14 or 16 Pitch via the little gearshift lever on the right side..

Ted Munk's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Curator
Points: 2786

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
