1971 Brother Opus 901 Serial # F1428005 1971 Brother Opus 901 typewriter, Serial # F1428005 Richard Polt's 1971 Brother Opus 901 typewriter. 2014-11-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1971 Brother Opus 901 Serial # F1428005 Pretty good St. Vinnie's find for $5, eh? Particularly when manuals have been few and far between at the thrift store for some time.

If I understand correctly, the in-house designation for this design is JP-3. We should add "Opus 901" to the known models.

Am I right to date it at 1971?
