“Much as I like owning a Rolls-Royce, I could do without it. What I could not do without is a typewriter…” - John O’Hara
Caught our eye: an Antique Hammond No 2 Universal Typewriter from LuccaBalesVintage.
From the item description:
“This beautiful machine was manufactured by Hammond between 1893 and 1897. Hammonds were some of the first commercially produced typewriters, with the first Hammond No. 1’s being produced in the early 1880s. The mechanism used in the Hammond typewriter was so revolutionary that it continued to be used in typewriters until the 1970s.
On the inside of the wooden lid, there is an original instruction sheet with some operational and care instructions. On the upper left-hand corner of this sheet is hand-written “68038” (the serial number of the typewriter) and “July 20/06, 120.00.” This is approximately the amount these typewriters originally cost (almost $2,000 in today’s money!), so this was the equivalent of a very nice laptop in the late 1800s/early 1900s.”
