For my lady and fellow typewriter enthusiasts. Thanks to Joe VC for his recent explanation on why this aggravating skipping occurs. ~TH~
typed on an Olivetti 25 which by the way, neither skips nor jumps. ~TH~

12-29-16 – Hmmm… this should be an ‘O’ – with an ‘O’ prefix on the serial number. Here’s a photo of the serial number; looks more like a ‘A’ to me… confusion.

I don’t get out to the Salvation Army store very often, even though it’s only 20 minutes away. Today I went in with low expectations for any typewriter sightings. Shows what I know – I came away with two “new” typewriters. Better yet, this one is a critter I’ve been wishing for, a Brother DeLuxe. Serial number L5887827 ~TH~
Sorry to say, nothing golden about the touch of this typewriter at the moment.
I purchased this critter in December 2015 but never got around to using it much due to some frustrating mechanical problems. I didn’t pay a lot for it, so I’m willing to put it on the workbench soon and try to fix the niggles.
I have posted it on the Typewriter Database, in case you want to explore some more information about this series of typewriters. ~TH~
