1971 Webster XL-747 Serial # B1203372 1971 Webster XL-747 typewriter, Serial # B1203372 Jonathan Sprung's 1971 Webster XL-747 typewriter. 2023-01-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Sprung: 1971 Webster XL-747 Serial # B1203372 I originally picked this up because I had once owned a Brother Charger 11, given to me by a girlfriend in University - and I loved it. It was a great first typewriter for working in a small apartment away from home. They are the same mechanism, and this Webster proved itself quickly. Nice to type on. Not a favourite by any means, but a solid typer for the size.

I have been collecting typewriters all my life, starting with a 1980's Brother Charger 11 (which I no longer have, but have replaced with an identical machine). I have well over 60 typewriters now, with a few rare portables. Some are interesting or odd, but most of mine are common machines.

My wife and I have made a deal, that I can keep buying typewriters if she can keep buying shoes. Fair enough! *shrugs*
