1964 Brother Prestige 720 Serial # M45927555 1964 Brother Prestige 720 typewriter, Serial # M45927555 Todd Payne's 1964 Brother Prestige 720 typewriter. 2021-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Todd Payne: 1964 Brother Prestige 720 Serial # M45927555 Sire of the Signature 510/513. Gorgeous copper color. My guess is 1964 but if it's actually 1974 then it is the Spawn on the Signatures not the sire :)

Very robust "pro-sumer" model. A luggable portable with standard level features such as a paper injector. Tab with tab break, full keyboard, user settable tabs, tons of 1/2 line spacing options, the full meal deal.

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.
