I started collecting in February 2021 and I now over 30. The oldest is a Caligraph from 1882, the newest is a Smith-Corona Coronet XL from 1970 something. Over the past year I have learned so much about different machines and how they work. Repairing a typewriter that doesn't work is both challenging and very rewarding.
