1972 Webster XL-747 Serial # G2387261 1972 Webster XL-747 typewriter, Serial # G2387261 Jonathan Crowe's 1972 Webster XL-747 typewriter. 2021-04-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Crowe: 1972 Webster XL-747 Serial # G2387261 Based on the serial number this was manufactured in July 1972. 11 cpi typeface. Acquired April 2021 from its original owner in Fort-Coulonge, Quebec.

It's missing the line-spacing sticker and one screw from the back plate, which absence interferes with the paper holder release. Needs a good cleaning to limber up the key action. Otherwise in very good shape on arrival; the platen is fantastic.
