1977 Sears Scholar Serial # 614444 1977 Sears Scholar typewriter, Serial # 614444 Mark Petersen's 1977 Sears Scholar typewriter. 2019-01-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1977 Sears Scholar Serial # 614444 A friend got this for me as a birthday gift a while back. I had high hopes since the keys felt nice and it came with some of the packaging suggesting a little used or well cared for machine. It turned out to work very poorly, particularly a carriage return which would not return the carriage without some help. It has gone off to Goodwill for someone else to deal with. Posted here because it has cool packaging stuff (and a sort-of cool serial number).
