    I have been collecting antique typewriters from the 1880s and 1890s for thirty years now and continue to look for these remarkable machines for my collection.

    If you would like to see my collection, it is well presented at my website

    Happy Typing.
    Martin Howard

      Are any yet functional?? I don't suppose ribbons are available!
    7. typewritercollector typewritercollector, 7 years ago
      Thanks for asking. All of my typewriters are in great mechanical condition but I actually do all my typing on my Mac!

      1/2 " ribbons are available at Business Depot (Staples)

      Nice collection and display

      The lighting in the cabinet are 20 W Xenon bulbs, which have a very good colour index but produce a fair amount of heat. If I were putting lighting into this cabinet today, I would use LED lights.

      Thank you all for letting me know that you like my typewriters and their display. I wish that I had space for two more of these cabinets!
