1983 Brother Super 7300 Serial # M37064633 1983 Brother Super 7300 typewriter, Serial # M37064633 Tas Kyprianou's 1983 Brother Super 7300 typewriter. 2023-11-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1983 Brother Super 7300 Serial # M37064633 A freebie from Facebook Marketplace - Owner had it from new and completed her Btech on it but was having a loft clearout and gave it to me knowing its keys were no longer working.

I took it apart right away and with a little advice from a friend in Malaysia was able to get the keys to move the type ball but only the left-hand side of the keyboard "computed" correctly. The remaining keys typed gobbledygook. Regular gobbledygook but gobbledygook nonetheless. The machine felt great to use so I reached out to the excellent Golf Ball Facebook Group where none other than our guru Duane from Phoenix typewriters said:
" have had a couple of these recently, like yours, near mint condition, that were working, gave them away on free typewriter Saturday's. If they work, great, if not and especially mis-selection, forgetaboutit . . . . ."

Duane had spoken. I stopped spending any more time on it. Shame though. It had a wonderful action and the machine, despite its problematic nature, has a quality feel to it. I think it’s rather handsome too.
I enjoyed the "art" it made whilst testing it and include some of it here for PICA BALL typeface reference.

The search for a fully functioning golf ball machine continues . . .

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 41 machines.

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
