I didn't need another Galaxie

...but I think you'll agree that for $5.00 it's interesting enough to add to the collection.

how do I read the number in there and look up the name?

6T 319908


  1. very weird! who would order a typewriter like that? where are the lists from which they selected their typeface? the commonest of machines can be the most mysterious.

  2. ***swoons***

    That is the coolest typeface ever! I have only seen it one other time (not in person), on a pink Smith Corona Silent Super that was being auctioned off on eBay - went for almost $200, as I recall. It's like script on steroids - super curly, super girly... love it!

    You have the best luck, no question about that.

    Please write my next letter with this typewriter! :-)

  3. Very, very unusual typeface. Good find! (This is a good candidate for making a font.)

  4. Deseret is the LDS version of St. Vinnies. We have one here too. I'm pretty sure that's where I got my $4.95 1947 Royal QDL many years ago. since then, not so lucky.

    PS, awesome typeface! you gonna digitize it as a font? :D


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
