1984 Brother EP-44 Serial # D41130926 1984 Brother EP-44 typewriter, Serial # D41130926 Ted Munk's 1984 Brother EP-44 typewriter. 2015-11-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1984 Brother EP-44 Serial # D41130926 Amazing! I make a blog post detailing the various models of Brother EP series thermal typewriters, and am curious about the EP-44 in particular because it was likely the first model to have 24-pin NLQ print quality along with a bidirectional RS-232C data port. And a month later, I find one in a thrift store with spare ribbons, a power supply, a user manual and a full pack of vintage thermal paper. What are the odds?

For the record, yes, the EP-44 is the first Brother Thermal Baby Wedge to use a Near-Letter-Quality 24-pin typeface. My guess was correct! :D

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.
