1965 Brother De Luxe Serial # L5887827 1965 Brother De Luxe typewriter, Serial # L5887827 tom hitt's 1965 Brother De Luxe typewriter. 2016-12-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1965 Brother De Luxe Serial # L5887827 Merry Christmas to me! I've been researching Brother typewriters lately, wishing for a De Luxe from the early 60s (I'm looking for one with the wire paper rest). Went to the Salvation Army store today and there were 4 typewriters there. This last one I unzipped and almost cried out; it's a De Luxe! Alas, the switchblade paper rest - I'm hoping for a wire paper rest some day. For now, the switchblade rest will do. :-)

A little bit of rash on the finish, but otherwise in solid working shape. Yay! ~TH~

Stunning luggage type carrying case!  I myself was not particularly stunned, but maybe they were in Japan.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
