1997 Brother AX-440 Serial # D78490042 1997 Brother AX-440 typewriter, Serial # D78490042 Steven Kuterescz's 1997 Brother AX-440 typewriter. 2019-04-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1997 Brother AX-440 Serial # D78490042 Apparently this late model AX-440 with German keyboard and print wheel has an environmentally-conscious construction.
I prefer this scalloped/rounded design to the boxy AX-550 I picked up earlier this year. It's lightweight yet surprisingly bulky.

Features include:

Decimal tabulation
Blocked automatic boldface
Underline by word
Underline continuously
Frames and lines for table grids
Delete entire words and lines at the touch of a button
Print speed of up to 12 characters per second
Form memory for saving and automatic activation of form positions
End-of-page message for DIN A4 and DIN AS formats
Text and phrase memory for approximately 28,000 characters
A 2-line display with 40 characters per line
Move, copy and delete text blocks
Automatic search and replace words in a text.

I initially thought this was a 2007 typewriter, but then wouldn't they have updated to ISO 14001:2004? See blog link.
