Chuck & Rich's Antique Typewriter website and museum

circa 1882 Hammonia- Germany's first typewriter

We're always looking to add to our collection- what might you have for us?

Welcome to the antique typewriter world! We're active, passionate collectors of antique/unusual typewriters who began collecting in 1996 and have been on the lookout ever since. This site will hopefully show you "why typewriters?" as we're so often asked by friends, relatives, dealers and others who have not seen our collection. Maybe you have one for us to add? Use the link below to email us! Keep in mind that we also collect typewriter related goodies. Like what?? Well; ribbon tins, instruction manuals, trade catalogs, typewriter oil bottles, check punches, staplers, pencil sharpeners... almost anything related to antique office equipment, but with a real soft spot for the typewriters!

We previously hosted the Northeast Typewriter Collectors Jamborees. Click on Jamboree to see more information about past get togethers.

The following links will tell you more about these mechanical marvels than you ever wanted to know! We've added a virtual typewriter museum to show you machines in our collection; this may even help you identify a machine of your own! Click on the 'Our Museum' link below to go there and use your browsers 'back' button after viewing a picture. The other pages linked below have descriptions for selected machines in the museum.

If you have an old typewriter and aren't sure what to do with it, let us know. Maybe it'll be something we'd like to add to our collection! For us, the more unusual the better!
