1418 Points, Typewriter Hunter

UK member living in London with Greek Cypriot heritage.
Relatively new to the hobby - December 2021.
The Linea 88 parts machine notwithstanding, my collection now consists of 27 machines - but the BlueBird is about to fly off to pastures new very soon.
My absolute favourite machine - it's both the prettiest and the nicest to type on - is my 1939 Royal KMM. Until that came along just recently, my Underwood Universal was winning the beauty pageant albeit whilst having a podium tussle with my Smith Corona Clipper and my Remington Non-Tab Portable. Like Bagpuss, those two are both saggy and a bit loose at the seams but I love them. Having used the Adler Universal recently, I have to admit it is my second-best typer. Effortless. The BlueBird 18b, Hermes 3000 Mk 3, 2000, the FACIT TP1, and the other Olympia SMs regularly chomp at the heels of my top typers and I count my blessings am lucky enough to have collected such a beautiful bunch.
