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 typewriterdatabase.com first.)

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

  8. Hello,
    I am a member of typepals and a follower of Sarah everett from just.my.typewriter. plus I use the database very frequently and just watched her video about you calling her out to post her typewriters. I only have a meager collection of 10 since I started collecting and repairing back around October of 2021 but looking to get more. So I guess what I am trying to say is.
    Kind sir, may I please join the mighty ranks as a typewriter hunter?

  22. Hello Munk. I would like to be upgraded to Typewriter Hunter, although I know very little about them. I learned to type on a manual typewriter I had when I was a kid. Also, I am having problems uploading my profile picture – it is a JPEG and it is 1.4MB in size.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

      all I can say about images is make them smaller. Usually it’s just too big.

  32. Hi Ted, I was trying to add an entry to the SCM Datecode and my cat hit enter and submitted it without it being completed. Should I just do a duplicate entry? The Datecode in question is HT 34513 but the serial number is incomplete thanks to my cat Elliott. The serial number is: 6MLC 368788H and the model is a Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve.

    1. Ok, I fixed it. It was in there twice anyway. (:

    The typewriter brand is called: Lectra

    Have nice day!

    1. Ok, added – but this better not be the code machine from “From Russia With Love”, because that’s not a typewriter. :D

  47. I might as well start taking photos of these as they wind up at my house, instead of just tinkering with them and making them work again.

  49. Hi, a friend of mine found an electronic typewriter in her aunt’s house. She gave it to me to test it and I managed to make some pictures. It is a daisy wheel one and it writes Olympia Splendid on the cover. I have nout found this model in typewriter database. Do you think I could add it via my TWDB account?

  50. Thank you for your reply, Munk!
    I have another question: sometimes I find decent-to-great pictures with typewriters in my local add website. Some models are not on TWDB, or some have few pictures in the TWDB’s gallery. Is it allowed to add a gallery for those models that are not listed in TWDB website? Also, I found a variation of a model that exists on TWDB but I don’t know how to add the pictures (should I create a new gallery?). Thank you!

    1. Generally speaking, not unless you have a serial number with the entry. Some years ago there was a fella who uploaded over a hundred machines that he was scraping off of ebay – basically any machine he could save the photo of, and none of them with a serial number. This resulted in clogging the pages with machines that had no useful information associated with them, which is detrimental to the research mission. I had to delete all of his galleries in the end. I’ll allow very special machines from sale listings, but a priority for inclusion is a serial number.

  57. Hello again, with another question: I found this Remington Travel-Riter Deluxe with serial no. GR 853019. The Remington-serial-no’s page for Travel-Riter has only `GR8850010 up`. The other GR serials don’t have the `up` word. Also, in the galleries, I found listed some model with serial no close to mine, and they listed as 1958 model, but according to the tables, there’s no serial no. starting with 8 in 1958. I need to figure what year was this typewriter made. Could you please help me? Thank you!

I want to put it in my gallery since there are none galleries about this specific model. Thank you in advance for your reply but also for your previous replies.

    1. Just pit 197X and we’ll figure it out later.

  70. Hi,

    Thank you to everyone behind this amazing web based resource.

    I was looking up info on my grandfather’s Remington typewriter that he bought in 1929 in erstwhile Burma under a rent to purchase agreement.

    Sharing some additional info to improve your database:

    His model was a portable with leatherette cover. Model no. N C eight zero eight four seven. According to your database, that would make it a unit produced in October 1928.

    Also according to your database, Remington discontinued the use of year in the serial number from September 1928.

    Since I have the original paperwork, perhaps there was some overlap beyond September 1928 when the month and year were still being used in the serial number.

    Hope this additional info can be of interest, if not value :)

    I’d be happy to share images of the paperwork. I don’t have the actual unit with me at the moment.

  79. Hi

    I’ve tried to look up a serial number for the Olympia B12 but it just goes around in a circle. It asks for the make and model number then it gives a link which is supposed to be a list of serial numbers and years but it just goes back to asking for the make and serial number.

    In case that feature is not working anymore, or it’s easier than explaining how to find it, I’d be grateful if you could let me know the year for the serial number 6094278.

    Thank you!

    Love the blog page.

    1. Works better when you scroll down past the header. (:
      B12 is a Nakajima made machine – datecoded 1976.

        Would it be possible for you to edit my given name on the TWDB? I’m uncomfortable being searchable by my Given Name, and would rather use my Pen Name for identification in the Database (JD Gryphion)

        I normally use it in cases like this, and I didn’t catch it in the autofill before submitting.

        1. pretty sure you can do that yourself. I added that ability last year.

        Thanks for adding me! If I wanted to change how my name is displayed on the website (not my user name, my actual name) to “Matt G” instead of listing my full last name, how would I go about doing so? I’m a teacher, and I try to avoid being publicly “Google-able”.

        Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

        1. Done, but seriously, if you don’t want your name out there, why put it in a web form in the first place? I keep getting requests to change people’s names, and I always am baffled why it’s even something someone would do at all if they wanted anonymity. :P

          1. Thank you. I appreciate it.

            Also, I think I can answer that question: most websites that ask for real names don’t often expose them on user account pages in addition to usernames. My expectation was that the website owner would be able to see my name as part of their own data collection, but that other users on the site would just see me as “TouchTyping”.

            As for why you get requests to change names, it’s probably because 1) the sign up form doesn’t make it immediately obvious that the full name will be posted publicly, and 2) there are easy links to change email, password, avatar, and description, but nothing for names, which when combined with #1, leads to dweebs like me giving the site my name, then wanting to obfuscate or change the name, but having no clear means to do so.

          2. Hmmn, well I question the wisdom of relying on those assumptions, but I’ve added a line to the signup form clarifying that signups should use a fake name if they prefer not to have the real name exposed, hopefully that helps. (:

    1. Resize photos to no more than 1000 pixels wide or tall. You can’t use photos straight out of a high-resolution phone camera. There is helpful text explaining this and the solution right on the upload form.

      Anytime you have a problem uploading a photo, that probably means it’s too big. Resize it to no more than 1000px wide or tall.

  159. I have a few typewriters, including models that are not in the database yet. I think I could add them. :-)

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

      1. Thank you. I just added my first typewriter. Now I have a problem. No Erika 3006 electronic, Optima SP20, SP24 and SP28 are in the list. These are the models from the early 90’s. Is it possible to add them?

        1. This question makes no sense. You can enter the model names freeform, and Erika and Optima are already listed as brands.

          1. Ok, I thought that I have to use the model list.

          2. There’s a box next to the select list where you can enter the model name if it doesn’t already exist.

  160. I would like to be upgraded! I have 1 typewriter to upload. My username is vucjak1993.

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

      1. Thank you. I would like to discuss or just to tell that I think Continental is not a brand. Brand is a Wanderer. There is a bunch of typewriters listed as brand Continental. If I am wrong ”normalize database” and add mine and gentlemans beautiful machines (#R210409, #289261, #R290376) to Continental page. Thank you for all the work. Greetings from Slovenia.

        1. Well, “Underwood” is actually “Underwood-Elliot-Fischer” too, but nobody ever files them that way, so suck it up and file your “Wanderers” under “Continental” with everyone else, and stop trying to make extra work for me by trying to swim against a very strong stream. :P

  161. I don’t have many machines (50 or so) but happy to help where I can because there are some gems in the batch!

    1. Welcome, Typewriter Hunter! (:

  162. Comment on the TWDB: great that the Optima serial number table has been expanded, compliments! Regarding standard machines I see an issue with branding however. M18 and M20 were (or should have been) branded ‘daro’, but M20 could also be branded Robotron. M22 and M24 were branded Robotron. So notes to such effect in the table would be helpful I think. But even then, how would a Robotron 20 owner know that he would need to consult the Optima serial number table? Perhaps by renaming the table “Optima (daro, Robotron)”?

    The same goes for electrics… This should be helpful: https://www.robotrontechnik.de/index.htm?/html/drucker/schreibmaschinen.htm

    Yes, all this re-branding is a bit of a nightmare, even more so with the portables. Regarding standards I have seen M14 or M16 branded as Ideal and even Erika… It seems there was a big difference between official policies and practice. The hoods identify the branding, and these were probably used or replaced as they were available, give the structural shortages in the GDR.

    Hope this helps! Keep up the good work.

    Second, I just purchased a very beautiful Hermes Baby, presumably made in Brazil (only lacks the back sticker with the factory name). Its serial number starts with 63 (I’ll be happy to provide it once it’s delivered to me by mail), and it’s made of orange (coral?) plastic, not metal. Both case and frame.

    It also has the 1960s/early 70s logo.

    I am guessing 1967, but I’m not sure if back in that year they made plastic frames in that color. Could you help me dating it?

    Thanks in advance!

        1. so you can make the Type-In coming up February. (:

          1. Absolutely! As long as I get the notification!

          2. Been looking for this announcement and haven’t seen it. I can only guess that I’m looking in the wrong spot (your more general blog). Where should I be looking?

          3. I don’t see it on the Library’s calendar as of yet, but the current date is 4/7 or 4/8, not sure which until the library announces it.

  238. Hi, tried to add a typewriter gallery for Esselte 80, but noticed that the brand Esselte is not on the list. Maybe rebranded or something, but didn’t find any mention about that either. Is there a process for adding a new brand to the database?

    1. Add it as brand “ABC” and note that it’s an “Esselte” in the description and make sure you get a photo and serial number added. That way I can look at it and determine what it’s a rebrand of, and create the appropriate brand category. I have to do that manually.

      1. Thanks! I also noticed the machine looks actually like “ServiType (Nakajima) 80”, I’ll put that to the description also.

  239. Can I please be upgraded my username is tattooedtypist

  266. I don’t know if this is the correct place to alert you for issues with the TWDB, but it is my personal opinion that this kind of posts should not be allowed: two recent entries with “coming soon” as the main photo.

    https://typewriterdatabase.com/197x8x-smith-corona-courier-ct.16670.typewriter
    https://typewriterdatabase.com/196x-olivettiunderwood-21.16650.typewriter

    Kind regards,

    Kevin

    1. Well, it’s not the right place, nor is it an issue with the TWDB – that sounds like an issue you may have with the way a new user posts placeholder photos that they clearly intend to replace later (hence “coming soon”). What solution do you suggest? Personally, I’m waiting to see how they complete the entries. (:

    2. Hi – it’s me who did that! I am having trouble with uploading pictures, front or otherwise. Sometimes they go sideways, and in one case I had the wrong picture uploaded to a listing, so at best it’s awkward and at worst, it’s incorrect. I can’t see how to delete a front photo and I don’t want to delete the entire gallery entry, so I did the “coming soon” graphics. Clearly I have LOTS of entries with zero pictures, so I don’t intend to do that will all entries. Sorry if it bugs you and hopefully it’s just temporary.

      1. some tips: Use a real graphics editing program to resize and change the orientation of your photos before uploading. Using your operating system’s Photo viewer app only changes orientation flags in your OS, and do not actually change the orientation of the image for other purposes. They also need to be resized to web resolution – photos at high-resolution straight out of your phone or modern camera will be way too large to upload.
