1972 Brother Deluxe 220 Serial # L23564215 1972 Brother Deluxe 220 typewriter, Serial # L23564215 Tami Sutcliffe's 1972 Brother Deluxe 220 typewriter. 2019-08-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tami Sutcliffe: 1972 Brother Deluxe 220 Serial # L23564215 Sturdy tomato red QWERTZ machine with "Techno" typeface. It has a Swiss office supply tag, a German warning label under the spool covers and a "Made in Japan" serial number, so who knows the story behind this one? Primitive in many ways and lacking a case, it still only cost a few dollars and seems like it could go on typing forever.
