1983 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 11 0054204 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter typewriter, Serial # 6126 11 0054204 Clark Hinson's 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter typewriter. 2015-11-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Clark Hinson: 1983 IBM Personal Typewriter Serial # 6126 11 0054204 A Personal Typewriter that I repaired for a customer. Highest sn that I've seen personally.
Like all other IBM Personal Typewriters, it has an 88-character element, single pitch (12-cpi) and the 210 "Bicycle" ribbon.

Apparently there were no options on the Personal Typewriter. All were this same Bisque color with the Charcoal bottom cover.

Casting date in the upper cover shows June 1983.

It has a couple of paint nicks, but overall is very nice.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
