1956 Halda 7-Star Serial # 7-019052 1956 Halda 7-Star typewriter, Serial # 7-019052 David Brechbiel's 1956 Halda 7-Star typewriter. 2021-10-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Brechbiel: 1956 Halda 7-Star Serial # 7-019052 My wife and I ventured to Kansas City, MO to pick up this Halda Star and then onward to Missouri Star Quilts in Hamilton, MO. Quite a fun trip. The Halda was in stellar mechanical shape but needed careful cleaning of spattered Liquid Paper! The Star's platen needs recovered and after hours of observation, the line lock issue is perplexing ... but a loud bell makes up for the flaw. Top 10 dings!

I collect late 1930's-early 1940's memorabilia. I have a small collection of radios from this era that I recently had refurbished. My interest in typewriters focused around a Royal KHM typewriter that was given to me. I decided in early 2016 to get it repaired, but the typewriter repairman I visited claimed it should be trashed and couldn't be fixed. The KHM sat on my garage bench .. again gathering dust .. I couldn't toss it.

In April 2016, on a whim, I closed an eBay BUY IT NOW (and overpaid a lot!) typewriter. The 1947 Smith-Corona Silent may have cost me dearly but it started a hobby that has become a passion to learn all I can about these amazing machines. Within 4 years I have collected nearly 160 machines and am slowly learning how to repair, be patient, and be logical! :) I hope to share my collection with the world very soon!
