1974 Facit 1840 Serial # 544 3828 1974 Facit 1840 typewriter, Serial # 544 3828 Kewin Sanfridsson's 1974 Facit 1840 typewriter. 2022-11-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kewin Sanfridsson: 1974 Facit 1840 Serial # 544 3828 This the Facit 1840, a electric typewriter from 1975 and it is quite a good looking machine in my opinion. The keys feels nice and I really like the shape of them as the rest of the typewriter. It has everything I would like on my main typewriter except the exclamation mark, I sure do wonder why so many typewriters is missing a exclamation mark. I cannot tell you how many time I have been writing something on a newly acquired typewriter and I have swore over that there was no exclamation mark!

I don't know if this is anywhere near a rare machine but it looks like it's not the most sought after either. I know atleast that it came in two colours as it said in a add I saw on google pictures. Warm Yellow (Orange) and Elegant Black (Dark Brown). I sure do hope I will find a orange one in the future though... as I really like this model.

Hi my name is Kewin and I'm a 23 years old from Sweden. I have a few hobbies like drawing and playing guitar but I do also like myself some project here and there which is where my interest in typewriters fits in. I have always collected things through my life but I did not expect typewriters to be my next big passion in collecting. I started collecting typewriters in the beginning of 2022 and so far I have 52 of them (3 of which is currently disassembled) . I find it really enjoyable to pickup a typewriter at a thrift store/second hand and starting to clean it up and get it to a working condition to the best of my ability and knowledge. (Excuse all the dog hairs in my pictures, I do actually try to remove the hair before taking the pictures. xD) Cheers!
