1964 Montgomery Ward Signature 510 Serial # F4458574 1964 Montgomery Ward Signature 510 typewriter, Serial # F4458574 Frederick Parker's 1964 Montgomery Ward Signature 510 typewriter. 2022-02-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Frederick Parker: 1964 Montgomery Ward Signature 510 Serial # F4458574 Montgomery Ward Signature 510 from June 1964 With Case in Grey color scheme
Script with 12 CPI, uses standard size universal spools

Notes:
- Instead of a platen release button on the left knob as in other 510s I have seen, this one has a pull knob to release the ratchet
- Seems to be missing a spring on the auto reverse and doesn't change automatically

Story:

Seller bought it for her teen daughter years ago, daughter didn't want it anymore, asked if daughter named the machine but didn't get an official answer

Retro Gaming enthusiast who loves mechanical things. My goal is to have a personal library with a section open for a "History of Typing" display which has prompted me to gather a selection of typewriters to compliment my computers going back to Commodore Vic-20 (also for creative writing). I started with a small collection I found in thrift stores and am currently rounding out my collection with more specific pieces that compliment my collection.
