1971 Eatons (Silver Seiko) 400 Serial # 11035941 1971 Eatons (Silver Seiko) 400 typewriter, Serial # 11035941 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1971 Eatons (Silver Seiko) 400 typewriter. 2022-08-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1971 Eatons (Silver Seiko) 400 Serial # 11035941 A prime example of Eaton's 400 model from 1970. Manufactured by Silver-Seiko under Litton's Royal name, and re-branded for Eaton's department store, this typewriter shares many of it's components with a wide variety of alternate models that were manufactured and sold during the 1960's and 1970's. Although this line was sold in large quantities, the Eaton 400 is not as commonly found as the more universally branded Royal Mercury, 200, Tab-O-Matic, etc. So I was perplexed to find a second one in relatively short time between each other. And once again, it is a very pleasant experience to use. The photographs present the machine as-found, due to the fact that the machine has not been serviced yet, as I only found it yesterday (March 5th 2018)
