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 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Brother EP-44 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Brother Serial Number page and the Brother EP-44 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
