A plastic-shelled 1968 version of the Brother JP-1, in Brother Script typeface donated by Linus Kafka from Tucson. Fixed linefeed ratchet and I get to keep this one, and its name is "Thunderbird 4" because it's the 4th of the Thunderbird 440T's in my collection! :D
- The Tucson Haul â€“ Fixed Typer #2
- In Praise of the Typewriterâ€™s Lack of a â€śSendâ€ť Keyâ€¦
- Itâ€™s Votinâ€™ Day! (at least it is for weirdos)
- Requests for Information, Exciting Stapler News and Koyaanisqatsi
Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Montgomery Ward Signature 440T on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Montgomery Ward Serial Number page and the Montgomery Ward Signature 440T By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
