A Brother by a different mother. Arrived filthy, covered in nicotine. Looks to be an early model, with the wire paper rest that folds over the top of the machine and isn't secured in any way. Typed better than I thought but has that tinny sound of the Japanese machines, such as my other Brothers and my Argyle. Some rust, also typical of the Japanese machines.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Wizard TrueType TrueType on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Wizard TrueType Serial Number page and the Wizard TrueType TrueType By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
