1966 Brother 88 Serial # G6318875 1966 Brother 88 typewriter, Serial # G6318875 Liz Glenn's 1966 Brother 88 typewriter. 2021-01-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Liz Glenn: 1966 Brother 88 Serial # G6318875 "Ike aka Eagle"

I acquired this in Jan 2019 from Duane Jensen (PhoenixTypewriter). My "Brother 88" is a JP-1 variant (2nd generation) that was made in July 1966 in Nagoya, Japan. I have enjoyed this immensely . I think my version is the US/American version of the Majestic that were sold in Canada. Furthermore, the same body style/type were also sold in Europe but were under Quelle's Privileg name badge.

Just a "Typewriter Nut". I like collecting technologies from the past such as typewriters and computers. There's just something about learning how things were made (& worked) back in the day!



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Brother 88 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Brother Serial Number page and the Brother 88 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
