Herman’s ’18 update #1

Its that time of year where we are all making preparations to journey down to Herman Price’s typewriter gathering again. I have scored multiple machines I wanted and one real special one.

First though the machines leaving the collection to make room for the new ones.

SP2 parts machine

SP10 parts machine

Royal 10 parts machine

1927 Remington portable in blue

1928 Underwood 5

1934 LC Smith 8 w/6 CPI typeface

1942 Royal KMM from WWII

1945 Underwood S

(also delivering a Royal 10 that was featured in my last safari)

Continuing the trend from last year its mostly newer machines leaving to make room for more oldies. Some of the machines I will be getting include:

1914 Royal 10, first production year with pinstripes and no glass.

A 1887 Caligraph 2 in need of a restoration.

Another Smith Premier 2.

A very nice Corona 3 with some issues.

However there is one machine not listed here that is truly the prize. A chance deal enabled me to get it. Was quite innovative for its time however management problems killed the machine after only a few thousand were made.

Guess away.

The Yost 4 and the Densmore 1 are coming along with me. If you want you can even try out these rare beauties.

  1. Quite a list of typewriters. I should be able to guess at the one in limited production, but my feeble mind will not recall it. I think Robert Messenger posted about one. Hope you have a great time at Herman’s.
