First introduced in the early 1960's as an additional line by the respected Japanese sewing machine firm, Brother, the small portable had been developed into a good quality machine (intended to compete favourably with German typewriters) by 1972 when this typewriter left the production line. The plastic 'wood trim' on the fascia is a nod to the American market, where Brother typewriters were extensively sold.
Featuring a full 44-character keyboard, keyboard 'touch' control and a pop-up paper rest, this is a well-specified typewriter. It appears to have had little or no use since new and is in practically unmarked condition. The nearest you could get to going back in time to 1972 and buying a new one ! Perfectly capable of a variety of work, and using a ribbon that is still available 'off the shelf' in three different colours, this machine would make the perfect gift - or simply treat yourself !
