1970 Webster XL-5000 Serial # F0703616 1970 Webster XL-5000 typewriter, Serial # F0703616 Marina Garrison's 1970 Webster XL-5000 typewriter. 2022-05-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Marina Garrison: 1970 Webster XL-5000 Serial # F0703616 I’ve been looking for a Webster 757 since watching JVC’s videos on his Webster a few years back. I’ve never seen a Webster in the wild until today. Not a 757 but an XL-5000 at my favourite place to acquire typewriters, Value Village thrift store for only $15 (2022). This one was in almost perfect condition (missing zipper pull on the case and a slight scrape where the return lever wasn’t lifted).
