1972 Sears Achiever Serial # 9167036 1972 Sears Achiever typewriter, Serial # 9167036 Geoff Flash's 1972 Sears Achiever typewriter. 2022-03-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1972 Sears Achiever Serial # 9167036 #588

An interesting combination ... Sears sold it, we know that from the "Achiever" name, there's no other mention of Sears. When you look under the hood, it looks like an Olivetti "Lettera... ?" and has the body style of an Underwood "378", but the bright blue is used for the entire body. Made in Spain.
If I use the serial #'s for the Underwood "378" this would be an 80's era typewriter...

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane"...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
No matter how many typewriters I am fortunate to be able to collect, my collection will not be as nice as Herman's...
