To The World of Collectible Typewriters!
Antique Typewriters: My first experience with an antique typewriter took place in the late 1970s. While employed as a repairman for a typewriter company in New York City, I noticed an old, dusty, Oliver typewriter, sitting on a shelf, just waiting for me to claim it. This was, without a doubt, the strangest typewriter I had ever seen. After carefully packaging the machine and carrying it on the NYC subway system, my Oliver had found a home. I quickly discovered there wasn't much information available on the subject, not to mention finding others who were interested in these machines. A Blickensderfer soon followed and I was hooked. A collector was born! It's now twenty-five years later and the Great Typewriter Hunt continues...
INFORMATION about historical typewriters is available at this site. There is nothing more I like to talk about than old typewriters. I can help you identify, date and possibly tell you just a little more than you might have known about that old typewriter you have. I also provide typewriter repair service as well as ribbons for vintage typewriters. Be sure to use the links at the left for more information about collectible typewriters.
