1964 Brother De Luxe Serial # J4518154 1964 Brother De Luxe typewriter, Serial # J4518154 Benjamin Esh's 1964 Brother De Luxe typewriter. 2024-04-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Benjamin Esh: 1964 Brother De Luxe Serial # J4518154 A Brother De Luxe. I've wanted one of these machines for awhile. A portable, metal, yet light weight typewriter that has a great feel and looks like a classic 50/60's sports car. I features a 1/! Key, a large carriage return arm, a 1 1/2 line option, duel color selectors, touch options and more.

When I bought it, the typewriter was in complete working order and needed only minimal cleaning. The keys did have a bit of yellowing and required some retro brighting.

I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I've been collecting "vintage" vinyl, computers, mechanical keyboards and typewriters since I was a kid. Born into an analog world, but grew up in a digital one.

My wife is a writer and I enjoy problem solving and puzzles, so naturally fixing I fell in love with fixing and maintaining typewriters and she then gets to enjoy all of these machines!
