By reading these, perhaps I can develop a typewriter bone!

Found in the bins.  Today the Nostradamus turned up. The other is from 1920, found last Summer.

mid-century potions tool

As I await the 1946 edition of the Mr. Boston Baratender's Guide, today the mail brought this jigger measure.  I have no clear idea of how old this is.  Some etsy seller claimed 1940's, but from the documentation it could go two decades either way.

"I feel like I need to get a typewriter right now."

That's what the girl said as she walked away with her group.  She was the one who typed about going to a baptism.
We were supposed to work registration, but the lead or whatever had us go to the driveway of a hotel nearby and keep the participants from getting creamed.  I had brought the underwood 319 to load up with a registration paper.  With the change in assignment I just put it out on a sturdy post for people to type whatever they felt like.  It was mildly popular.  Some pics may turn up, which I'll post if I can.  My phone was acting up so I didn't get any myself until we got home.

Close enough.  I do need to address that scanner driver/Win10 issue. 

Sorry, I didn't test it.  I did take home a nice shirt and a new belt.

Here's a manual - oh wait...

In addition to these, there were also an SCM and a Royal.

left behind, but still cool.

I still don't' buy every typewriter that shows up in the bins, but if I can, I get a photo for you.  It's been a while, (I think I bought the last one, a brother) but today I saw a familiar case and guessed correctly what it would look like, but not the model name.  I'd never seen a "Super 12" before.

It looks just like the Silent-Super that was my very first bin find.  It also had a very musty smell, and I've dealt with that too often to do it again.
