1962 AMC (Japy) Personelle Serial # 473058 1962 AMC (Japy) Personelle typewriter, Serial # 473058 Mark Rosenzweig's 1962 AMC (Japy) Personelle typewriter. 2018-09-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Rosenzweig: 1962 AMC (Japy) Personelle Serial # 473058 This is a Japy Script relabeled AMC (for Associated Merchandising Corp.) that was sold in a department store in the U.S. It is based on the Swiss Patria design as is my Spanish-made Amaya Florida. The major differences from the Florida are the AMC has a sheet-metal body instead of plastic, and the ribbon color selector lever is to the right of the typing point instead of to the right of the keyboard; this AMC also has a tabulator. Serial number 473058 indicates it was manufactured in the mid-1960s. Made in France.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
