1984 Facit 1740 Serial # 428780882 1984 Facit 1740 typewriter, Serial # 428780882 Geoff Flash's 1984 Facit 1740 typewriter. 2019-11-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1984 Facit 1740 Serial # 428780882 #299

This typewriter has never been used, the packing material was still inside.
Dan did a wonderful write-up on this typewriter, so I've included a link to his notes. A friend found this one while antiquing with his girlfriend. After picking it up, I started doing my research... to make a long story short... I now own 3 of these, 2 of them are still sealed in their original boxes. (see photo at the end...)

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane�...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
