1969 Facit 1620 Serial # p621986 1969 Facit 1620 typewriter, Serial # p621986 Mike Green's 1969 Facit 1620 typewriter. 2022-05-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1969 Facit 1620 Serial # p621986 I walked in a small town thrift store and found this Facit 1620 for $8. The arm was off but was in the case with its stripped screw. I found a perfect fit hex- head stainless steel replacement at Ace Hdw. store. Papers in the case indicate this was owned by a Pentecostal minister. Cleaned it up and brought it back to fight the devil again. It's quite a good typer and the carriage traveling in a ball bearing tube is heavenly.

So many machines to explore. I became interested in typewriters as a creative tool but then the collecting bug hit me and gave me an escape from writer's block. I hope I can land on one machine and start the writing.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Facit 1620 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Facit Serial Number page and the Facit 1620 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
