Gave this typewriter to my Mom about two years ago. Had to do an adjustment on Thanksgiving 2019, but has been very reliable for her use. If I remember correctly, Silver Seiko made these typewriters and Sears added there name on them. This Achiever's model number is 268.52991. I had to retake the pictures off my camera phone, due to being to large to upload directly from phone.
Hunter: Kenneth Kruschka (KenKruschka)
Status: Typewriter Hunter
After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Sears Achiever on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Sears Serial Number page and the Sears Achiever By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
