1972 Brother Deluxe 900 Serial # J2491536 1972 Brother Deluxe 900 typewriter, Serial # J2491536 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1972 Brother Deluxe 900 typewriter. 2018-02-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1972 Brother Deluxe 900 Serial # J2491536 Yet another example of a thrashed typewriter during shipping...

1€ typewriters are tempting, but that´s no excuse to get them badly beaten. You know, the usual excuse of "what d´ya want for 1€, man?"

If I´ve done things right, this is one of the neverending variations of the third generation of JP-1´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 it´s in far worse condition than advertised by the seller. It´s bad enough that I can´t post a type sample, but I´m pretty sure I´ll fix it. Nothing seems to be as damaged as the handle.

What I´ve managed to "perceive" from this machine is how better the first generation of JP-1´s is. I´m still awed by my brave little Brother Valiant.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´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.
