1967 Facit TP2 Serial # P565471 1967 Facit TP2 typewriter, Serial # P565471 Mark Rosenzweig's 1967 Facit TP2 typewriter. 2015-07-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Rosenzweig: 1967 Facit TP2 Serial # P565471 When I got this typewriter its escapement was frozen. This seems to be more of a problem on Facits (and Cole-Steels) than other portable typewriters, judging by comments on the Portable Typewrtier Forum. . The machine features include a unique tubular carriage support as well as carriage locking/unlocking from the keyboard. Made in Sweden.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
