1991 IBM Wheelwriter 1000 Serial # 11RGD40 1991 IBM Wheelwriter 1000 typewriter, Serial # 11RGD40 Steven Kuterescz's 1991 IBM Wheelwriter 1000 typewriter. 2015-12-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1991 IBM Wheelwriter 1000 Serial # 11RGD40 An eBay sighting of a wedge that could be listed as a Lexmark, but the serial number begins with an IBM factory code so I guess this is where it properly belongs.
1991 is the upper range of the copyright notice on the serial number plate, so I went with that.
Still in use by sports journalists as I recently found out. :)
See my IBM 6715 link (below). A similar-looking wedge with very different origins.

Perth, Western Australia. The best place in the world to be during a pandemic. But not an ideal location for a typewriter collector. My collecting interests shifted from mechanical typewriters to electronic. Theres something about the daisy wheel I like and there are more design variations than you might think. Still have few mechanical and electric typewriters. Running out of physical space ... ;)
