197x Perkins Brailler Serial # A-22281 197x Perkins Brailler typewriter, Serial # A-22281 Ted Munk's 197x Perkins Brailler typewriter. 2017-06-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 197x Perkins Brailler Serial # A-22281 front number 290998.

Okeh, let's discuss: is a brailler a typewriter? I ask, because the category for "Perkins" dates back to before I took over, so Dirk apparently thought they were, enough so that he created the category.

However, I'm not sure I see why braillers *would* be typewriters when steno machines *aren't*, except that braillers take normal-sized paper and have all of the basic mechanical features of a typewriter in basic operation, while stenos really are operationally-speaking, entirely different animals.

also, most brailler manufacturers are still around, and it might actually be possible to get age lists directly from them, which would be nice, for a change. :D

Opinions?

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
