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
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.
Here are the samples of the typefaces
Here are some photos of the machines she currently has on display. She will be moving Sunday/Monday
A beautiful little shop
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.
Another one of mine. A solid Underwood typer.
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.
This entry was typed awhile ago, just trying to play catch up.
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.
