Antique Typewriter Collecting
Hammond No. 1 - Circa 1883

  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 in a back storage room filled with neglected and unwanted typewriters.  This was the strangest typewriter I had ever seen and after carefully packing the machine up in a box 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 typewriter soon followed and I was hooked.  A collector was born!  It's now thirty-five years later and the Great Typewriter Hunt continues...

Welcome To The World of Collectible Typewriters!

INFORMATION about historical typewriters is also 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.  Feel free to contact me at the email address below.
