1975 Sears Manual 1 Serial # B5333165 1975 Sears Manual 1 typewriter, Serial # B5333165 Ted Munk's 1975 Sears Manual 1 typewriter. 2022-08-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1975 Sears Manual 1 Serial # B5333165 Found at Tempe Arc Thrift store in need of a basket alignment. Donated to the CTP, and only later we find out that it's a Brother JP5 (corresponds to Brother Model 1600 - the long-carriage version would be the 1613). I would have paid more attention to it if I knew that then. Luckily, Ryan added it to the TWDB after painting it red and giving it away, so I have the serial number now. :D

Ted Munk's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Curator
Points: 2786

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
