Not sure on the year, as there is not a break out from 74-76, The first newspaper ads appear in 72 and end in 76.

Low interest in ultras meets high interest in department store models. Looks nice with the sales decal peeled off and 2 step polished. No worries, that decal was meant to come off by the ease with which it did. Unlike some!!!

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
