1972 Sears Holiday Serial # 199211 1972 Sears Holiday typewriter, Serial # 199211 Joshua Chalifour's 1972 Sears Holiday typewriter. 2019-02-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Joshua Chalifour: 1972 Sears Holiday Serial # 199211 My five year old son loves my typewriters. He wanted his own red typewriter so when I saw this functioning, kids typewriter on Ebay, I figured it was perfect. The back says it was manufactured in England by Byron Jardine but I haven't been able to figure out the date of manufacture. The person I bought it from thought it was sometime in the 1970s.

2018 Update: I sold this one, got my son an Underwood.

I'm an academic librarian and a writer. I confess to typewriter ogling, a symptom of being a mécascriptophile.
