Beta Testers for Typewriter Database Wanted!

Typewriter Database is now seeking typewriter collectors who have photos of their collections and serial numbers handy to beta-test the Typewriter Gallery Uploader. If you would like to be among the first intrepid Typewriter Hunters to upload typewriter galleries for your collection and sightings, please leave a comment below indicating you would like to be upgraded to “Typewriter Hunter” status. (make sure you’ve created an account at first.)

I’d like to thank Richard Polt, who was the first Beta Typewriter Hunter to upload a sighting: a 1919 Century 10!

  10. Mr. Munk,

    My collection has grown from a lonely, broken KHM to almost 20 machines in eight months. Do you hold interventions? :) If not, then starting to share the collection may help me curve my need to collect these wonderful machines. (yeah, right).

    My username is davidbrechbiel. Please upgrade my account to Typewriter Hunter.

    Thank you for your fine resource and your commitment to save this information for future collectors.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter (:

  11. Hi,

    Coronaboy here.

    I have added a photo and an introduction.

    I would be very grateful if you would add me to the database as a Typewriter Hunter, and would really enjoy adding photos of my collection to your wonderful database.

    Many thanks


    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter!

  12. You know… I started an account on your site like 5 years ago or so and had no idea this is what I was supposed to do (that is, write a comment here) to get my status changed to “Hunter.” So… when you can, please do that for “lukiepete”

    Also: Happy holidays and thanks for the great database!!!

    1. Welcome, finally at long last! :D

  13. I would like to be a Typewriter Hunter. I just started a few months ago so I only have 8 typers at the moment.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

  14. I need some help figuring this site out and the typewriter I recently bought.
    Not sure if this is the right page but here’s the thing:

    I bought a Continental Typewriter with Dutch (Holland) keys.
    It looks almost identically to the 1931 Continental Standard, but has an image on the front exactly similar to the 1925 Continental Standard. Under the image it says “Wanderer-Werke A:G. Chemnitz”
    I found a serial number which I can’t find in the database here or on Google, 424809. It has loads of patent numbers on the back which are hardly readable.

    I am hoping someone can help me out determining the model and the year of this version, so I can look up a manual of it and try and do some maintenance to improve its operating skills.


    1. the proper place to ask for that info is on TWDB where other collectors will see it. This post is for people asking for upgrade, not for general questions.

  15. Would love to post: I have some interesting machines.

    1. Wlcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

  16. I want to get my acc upgraded so that I could submit galleries. Sorry but no real photo of myself as I choose to remain anonymous :)

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunting Dog (:

  17. Hi, I’d like to document my typewriters and be upgraded to “typewriter hunter”. Thanks!

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter Hunter! :D

  18. Dear Mr. Munk

    I am not aware about any other way to contact you, therefore I am doing it here. I want to refer about two mistakes on TWDB.

    I know, that you have these informations from some sources and it is not your research (I have seen same mistake in old issue of ETCetera) but Zbrojovka Brno is located in Brno, so statement: Zbrojovka Brno, in Prague, Czechoslovakia… is sadly incorrect. Gun factory Zbrojovka Brno is located in Brno, which is second largest city in the Czech Republic and capital of Moravia. I would like kindly ask you to remove that mistake.

    With all modesty, I would like to propose merging of Zeta and Zeta(Consul) brands together. First desktop standard made after end of short postwar producton of Remington 16 is Zeta. It was accompanied with mid-portable also named Zeta and later export models (weel known ultra-portable) were labeled as Consul and after its succes in the world, all machines carried that name, so Zeta vanished completely. Only fisrt version of desktop was entirely known as Zeta, all other machines were either Zeta or Consul and later on, only Consul.
    So, I find unnecessary to keep them both, I think that best is merging them and left Zeta(consul) version, which is delivering best picture about how it is.

    Second is incorrectly dated Continental of Jaroslav Pochyly collection

    I am sharing enthusiasm of TWDB to be ultimate source of typewriter knowledge and as a quite obsessive person (please, forgive me) I am displeased by this error. Mr. Pochyly has big collection and I don’t wan to blame him about his mistake. I am not just sure, I am certain as hell that this machine is not 1938. It is 1914. I have checked with two ebay examples from 1914, both have this less frequented front decal, which has both old and new factory together on it. I am not an expert to Continental, but I have 10 of them and really know, what ’05, ’08, ’22, ’33, ’28, ’31, ’38, ’39, ’40, ’42 looks like and Mr. Pochyly’s machine is definitely somewhere under ’20!
    On one photo, there can be seen, that serial number is five digit and starts with 7. So it is somewhere above 70000 and thats exactly 1914 acording to database.

    As I said before, I just want to help and improve improve TWDB and I am really glad, that something that awesome is existing!

    Thanks Mr. Munk for all of it.

    Best Wishes, Vlastimil Novák (Schrei112)

    1. ok: fixed that Continental and the Brno notation on Consul..

      Now, Regarding the third item, if I understand correctly, there are *three* potential serial number series under the name “Zeta”, and from the few examples, I see a Remington assembled by Zeta, a Zeta Standard and a couple Zeta-branded Consuls. Because the categories are predicated by the serial number pages that the categories are linked to, there has to be at least two Zeta categories – one that links to the Consul serial page, and one that links to the theoretical page that will eventually contain the age list for the Remington-pattern Zetas (assuming they are not actually Remington series, in which case a third category “Zeta (Remington)” would be needed to link to the Remington page), and the Zeta Standards series list.

      see how it makes sense? :D

  25. Hello,

    Would you please activate my new account? I was unable to figure out how to add a photo to my profile. Thank you.

    I also have a question:

    I have a Remington De Luxe (SN B1679626). The database dates it to 1948. My question is that the type is extra large. A capitol letter is 5mm tall. Someone told me that this typewriter was designed for speeches, so the text is easily read from a distance. Is it true? Do you have any other explanations for the use of this typewriter? Thank you for your consideration.

    1. Welcome Typewriter Hunter! You can now add galleries (:

  29. Hello Mr. Munk!!

    I have acquired, cleaned and photographed lovely Olivetti MP1 but on the paper table is MONTA. On the luttle badge on the front is olivetti… It is not fisrt in my hands, it was probably version just for Czechoslovakia, because I found just one other in the outside world and it was with Czech keyboard… So, my question is: Should I list it as Olivetti or you will create idependent brand name?

    1. I’ve added category: “Monta (Olivetti)” for you (:

      1. thanks a lot!

  30. i have to ask that you delete my account as i have left the typwriter collectors world

  44. Hello Mr Munk,
    I’m from Australia and have recently acquired a Hermes 2000 Typewriter that does not seem to be shown on the database. It looks like a crossover model between 1955 and 56. How do I go about submitting pics and info for the database? Do I need to become a member or can I email them to someone?

    1. you need to become a member, then be upgraded to Typewriter Hunter by posting in this thread (that part you’ve already done, so just sign up and when I see you, I’ll upgrade ya.) Once I’ve upgraded you, you’ll have access to the gallery upload tools and you can post your machine gallery(s).

  70. Munk, I tried registering at TWDB and got a message saying my email address was permanently banned, due to “spammers”. It also said I didn’t fill out all the required fields. I definitely did fill out all the required fields (every field I saw, in fact), and that was literally the first time I’ve ever tried to sign up, though I’ve used the site for reference for years. I don’t know any other way to contact you, or what else to do. I’m not going to sit and create BS email addresses just to have this happen to them over and over due to some bug in your registration system. Please contact me and tell me what I need to do. Thanks. Please also delete this reply afterwards.

    1. It’s not a bug. Gmail addresses are disallowed because they’re used a lot by spammers. Yahoo and Yandex also. Try a non-glmail/yahoo/yandex account and you’ll be fine. (:

  89. Hi, Recently won an auction for a nice old typewriter which somehow led me to your site. Not that I need anything else to collect but it is pretty. :-) Hoping to be able to use this machine too, it does not look like it was used much in the past. It is an Underwood and if I did the serial number thing correctly, it should be from the late 1920’s. Which I think is cool. I have caning jars from that era as well. Tracy

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter (:

    Second question do you think to add possibility publish videos?

    BR and Greetings from Russia.

    1. Added category “Active”. You can link to a video in the gallery’s “Links” section, at the bottom of the gallery edit page, but I can’t host videos on the site.

  93. Hi! I just bought my first typewriter (an Alpina) and I’ve been hunting for while for more info. Your database is the most concise piece of info I’ve found but I’m struggling a little to understand everything.

  94. hi, i have a Remington Rand wide carriage typewriter and cant find my serial number in your database… my serial number is JT1012390… anywhere i can find the model and year please? Thanks so much!

    1. without a picture or some idea of model name, that’s tough to do. Also, this thread is for asking to be upgraded, not for asking specific year/model questions. (:

  95. Hello Mr. Munk

    I love your site — and I love typewriters. I’m still a novice when it comes to fixing them, but just in the last month I have bought five fine machines, and I’m eager to learn more about them. Will be happy to upload photos and serial numbers if I can be approved to do so. Thanks.

    Dear Mr. Munk,

    please correct the brand “Gossen Tippa” to “Gossen” in the drop-down list as Tippa is only he models name. I hope that this change doesn’t produce a mess in your database.

    Best regards,


    1. I seem to recall there was discussion about that years ago that resolved in “Gossen Tippa” as the brand name, but I don’t remember why, so I’ll change it and see if everyone yells at me abut it. (:

  99. Hello, Mr. Munk
    I have recently caught the typewriter bug. So far I have five beautiful machines in my collection, which I would love to feature for my fellow hunters. So, can you upgrade me, please?

    1. Once again, thanks for having me. Feel free to disregard the above message.

  100. Rev. Munk,

    I’d like to be upgraded please. I’d love to call myself Hunter and share the dozen typewriters I’ve come to know.

  105. Por que tengo ahora el status de member y no de typewriter hunter? Cual es el problema? Me lo podrias explicar?, Gracias,. Un saludo desde España.

    1. He recibido muchas quejas de que has estado usando fotos de Ebay y otros coleccionistas en tus galerías sin permiso. Necesito descubrir si usted dejará de hacer eso y quitará las galerías. Si está de acuerdo con eso, puedo actualizarle a Machinewriter Hunter de nuevo.

  106. No sabia que no se podian utilizar las fotos de Ebay. Lo siento si alguien se ha sentido ofendido. Mi unico interes era aumentar la base de datos. Me dedico solo a mis maquinas de mi coleccion particular y me olvido de los sitting. lo siento de nuevo. Un saludo. Gracias.Espero tu respuesta. Lo siento.

    1. Ok, te he actualizado de nuevo a Máquina de escribir Hunter. ¡Dar una buena acogida! Elimine las galerías de eBay. Puedes cargar observaciones, pero por favor usa fotos que te hayas tomado o que hayas obtenido permiso para usarlas. Gracias. (:

  107. Pide disculpas, en especial a Uwe. Lo siento, lo siento.

  108. Quieres que quite algunas en especial o las quitas tu. Todas las de Ebay?

    1. Debe quitar aquellos en los que la foto no es suya y no ha obtenido permiso para usarla.

    Martin here from sunny England! I have just been passed down an Oliver No.9 typewriter that has been in my family for decades. Serial number 792535. I have pictures but cannot find the specific date that it was manufactured. Me and my partner are in the process of cleaning up the grime from it and get it fully functioning on it’s original parts!

  131. I have a Blickensderfer 7 Serial No. 132773 which makes it early 1909 based on your serial number tables. I don’t currently have a photo but it is minus the escutcheon label on the front of the type head mount and has lost its E/6 keytop. I’ve had it since summer 1956, bought from a friend’s brother. Newly registered but may have visited before.

  137. Hi. Blenderboy1 here.. I recently uploaded a picture and type sample of my Hermes 3000 however I can’t for the life of me upload the rest of my pictures of it into the gallery.. I tried dragging and dropping them (4) pix and it just places an exploded size photo of the first one and nothing else.. Any thoughts?

    1. re-size the photos to be no more than 1mb each. if they’re too big, they won’t upload. (:

  138. Hi fellow typewriter collectors, I am new on the site. I started collecting typewriters 30 years ago. I am very old school so please be patient with me. I just bought a remington super riter from 1957. can anyone tell me if remington added the silver trim to the super in the late 50s?

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

  139. Sir;
    I have recently registered but cannot login with the password I thought I entered. Moreover, the “forgot” password function is not sending me a reset password email. I do not want to reregister with a user name I will likely forget…I like to use the same one on these things. Can you manually reset it or at least manually send me a password reset to: heapcoup AT sbcglobal DOT net.
    Much obliged and I have been using your site for a while…Awesome!

    1. Successfully sent notification email to heapcoup [at] sbcglobal [dot] net!
      be sure to check your spam box. (:

  140. I’d like to become a typewriter hunter, I don’t have much, but I do have a couple models that don’t seem to have as much representation, so I thought I’d help out!

    1. The username is jcreilley, by the way.

  141. Hello. My Royal KMG and I just created an account and would like to become a typewriter hunter. User name is croucher. Thank you.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

  142. I made a mistake when signing up to be a member and my email is blocked. How can I prove I’m legit?

    1. Well let’s see, there is a small list of spammer email domains that are automatically blocked from signing up. Gmail is one of those domains, so if you tried to sign up with a gmail account, it won’t work. If that’s the case, try using a different email. It’s not a matter of being “legit”, it’s a matter of filtering out the bots that attempt repeated junk auto-signups. (:

  143. hello, sir, please upgrade me to Typwriter Hunter. User name: heapcoup2. My other attempts using my email: failed: confirmation emails were never sent. Please delete the other login names used (heapcoup and heapcoup1) and change this if you can to just “heapcoup.” Your email of 11NOV never arrived (including spam folder). I used my work email this time…yay.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:
      oh, and I deleted the other account.

  144. Could I be up-graded to Typewriter Hunter as well? My username is “Beethro”.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter (:

  152. Hi, I’m having some difficulty starting my account. I loaded two user names with this email address. I will assure you that I am a human… unless you ask my wife. Can we work through my email and get things started? I have a small collection of about 50 typewriters that I’d like to add to your site and participate in the discussions.
    Thanks for your time,

    1. Ok, I don’t see that email address in the signups. are you sure you signed up here?

      I checked the email exclusion list and is an allowed domain, so you weren’t caught up in the anti-spam filter. did you fill out all the fields when submitting?

  153. Please upgrade me to a “Typewriter Hunter.”

  166. Hello, username Darx respectfully requesting promotion to Typewriter Hunter status, please and thank you :)

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

  167. Hi Noticed on your gallery of Olympia Splendid 66 type writers one starting with a similar but higher serial number to mine from 1967.
    Mine is 5 – 1417172. It is a cursive script model and I was interested in finding the year.
    I haven’t used it for years and with bad fingers can’t any more. I’m not a collector so am probably going to ebay UK it.

  168. Request to upgrade to add my Hermes 3000 and Underwood-Olivetti Lettera 22 to the database and join this group’s wonderful work and discussions.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:
