1967 IBM Selectric I Serial # 4891170 1967 IBM Selectric I typewriter, Serial # 4891170 Erik Bruchez's 1967 IBM Selectric I typewriter. 2021-02-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1967 IBM Selectric I Serial # 4891170 I got this machine for "free", although I donated $10. It was initially listed for more, but then it stopped working and the seller then let it go for free or a small donation. I had it serviced later and it works well now.

This is a model 7x3 (11" writing line). It came with a cover and manual.

It's fairly plain compared with a Selectric II or III. But it is also more compact, which I like.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
