1967 Majestic 600 Serial # F7636852 1967 Majestic 600 typewriter, Serial # F7636852 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1967 Majestic 600 typewriter. 2014-12-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1967 Majestic 600 Serial # F7636852 A Brother by any other name is still a Brother, especially when it sports that ubiquitous Parents' Magazine sticker.

Sifting through the machine's travel case I found a completed warranty card that suggests this typewriter was a Christmas gift from a last minute shopper. Other typed documents found in the case hint at - but don't prove - that this Majestic was either owned (or used) by historian Norman Hillmer. One thing that the papers do prove is that this machine was still being used well into the 1980s.

The Majestic 600 is a solid machine with a nice action, but I still find the hyperbole on the machine's hang tag amusing. "Heavy-duty" to define its build, and "stunning" to describe its travel case might be stretching things a little. Still, it certainly was a good value in its day, and that it still works perfectly today at the very least supports the card's claim that it has a "rugged" design.
