1976 Brother (Messa) XL1010 Serial # 6436570 1976 Brother (Messa) XL1010 typewriter, Serial # 6436570 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1976 Brother (Messa) XL1010 typewriter. 2018-04-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1976 Brother (Messa) XL1010 Serial # 6436570 Curious things are about in the re-branding and badge-engineer department. This Brother, made in Portugal of all places, is a Messa or ABC by any other name. Why it is that Brother would put their name on it is unknown, especially when their own production lines were churning out good quality machines at home. While twinning the Sears Chevron, it is still a fine machine, even if built to a cost.
