It’s been awhile…

It’s been awhile since I posted anything. It’s been a rough year, with far too much drama and angst to really get into.

National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO) is starting up in a couple of weeks. I had been planning on selling some of my collection off but procrastination is my tragic flaw.

I’m planning on selling:

A Royal Arrow, converted into a USB Keyboard. It is still a fully functional typewriter, but you can plug in tablets, ipads, ipad minis, newer smartphones and computers.

An original Royal Portable in black, also converted into a USB keyboard. A beautiful model.

A Montgomery Ward Signature 440T. An all plastic body typewriter that is lightweight and a solid typer. This one has an Elite typeface.

Possibly some Smith Coronas. I was thinking of a Silent, a Sterling, and maybe a Cursive Classic 12.

I’ve got several Royal Portable Woodies, and might be selling one or two of them.

Here is the Signature 440T… I was thinking of asking $75

Here’s the PDF of the prize

By the way, I’ve thought about it, and that is a very cheap prize. I’m going to throw in a couple of sheets of carbon paper too.img021

One of mine up for sale, a Remington desktop. If it doesn't sell this weekend, I'll likely donate it to her.

My 440T Signature. I had it here, but took it back. I have a new replacement "E" keycap for it.

My "Noisy Noiseless". Looks great, but no case.  Thinking about placing it in a bookstore for customers to plunk on.

The first decent typewriter I ever bought.  A bareboned WW2 era, Underwood.

My new Underwood Woody, and Movie night!

I apologize for the condition of the typecast.  The Woody needs a new ribbon and I had to darken the image just so the typecast could be read.

I’ll take some pics of the typewriter later. I need to start getting ready for the movie.Image
