Yet another example of a thrashed typewriter during shipping...
1â¬ typewriters are tempting, but thatÂ´s no excuse to get them badly beaten. You know, the usual excuse of "what dÂ´ya want for 1â¬, man?"
If IÂ´ve done things right, this is one of the neverending variations of the third generation of JP-1Â´s. Brother made good, nice and inexpensive typewriters, so one of these is always welcome.
But the handle of the carrying case is shattered beyond repair, and itÂ´s in far worse condition than advertised by the seller. ItÂ´s bad enough that I canÂ´t post a type sample, but IÂ´m pretty sure IÂ´ll fix it. Nothing seems to be as damaged as the handle.
What IÂ´ve managed to "perceive" from this machine is how better the first generation of JP-1Â´s is. IÂ´m still awed by my brave little Brother Valiant.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
