1966 Brother Opus 895 Serial # A6111518 1966 Brother Opus 895 typewriter, Serial # A6111518 John Reilley's 1966 Brother Opus 895 typewriter. 2021-06-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Reilley: 1966 Brother Opus 895 Serial # A6111518 eBay sighting of a Opus 895. We don't have any of these recorded yet, but they look delicious! That blue! Notice a few bits that indicate it's an older design, such as the lack of a paper rest and the 'x' style bottom plate. Also doesn't look like the case has the rubberized bumpers that keep the humpback JP-1's from bumping around. I wonder if the dimensions are tighter so the machine is touching the extreme edges of the case and that's enough to keep it still? I worry about this machine surviving shipping. Then again it's a Brother, so odds are in its favor.

I'm a high school English teacher. Whenever I have to teach my students how to format a paper, I unleash a flock of Charger 11's at them! (they love it). I am most interested in the Brother brand, but I dabble in any and all machines.
