CLEARly Unusual!

It's almost 2am here, but I couldn't resist sharing photos of my latest acquisition (from a while back actually) that I truly am in awe of ... And I think it's clear to see why (eeeps, couldn't help myself!) ...

More likely than not, this typewriter probably spent some time behind bars since the transparent housing means that nothing can easily be removed from or smuggled in with the machines ... It truly makes for a fascinating machine that I am so happy to be able to have in my collection! I had in fact been wanting one for quite a while, so I was so excited when Jase presented this to me ... He says it's a romantic typewriter since he can imagine a few love letters (at least) must have been composed with this very machine :)

*I apologize for the awkward sizing of the fonts and photos as I'd composed the last two entries on my iPad. Once I have access to my PC, I'll edit accordingly :)


  1. Very cool! How does it type and feel? I understand these clear-bodied typers are still being manufactured.

  2. Hi Joe! It types wonderfully and actually reminds me of my Royal Fleetwood except that this one has transparent housing :) I believe that Swintec still manufactures clear-bodied typewriters but this manual Royal typewriter should be an older production!

  3. Very nice. First manual I've seen in a clear housing. Swintec makes electric clear ones especially for prisons.

  4. The first one I I saw one (online) was at this site - and then I knew I wanted one if the opportunity arose :)

  5. Hmmn, Silver-Seiko built this model for Royal between 1969 and 1974-ish, so if it's a prison typer, it's an old one (:

  6. What a nifty looking typewriter! I've never seen one with a clear body before.


  7. This is how my colleague Wesley Virgin's report begins in this SHOCKING and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he found hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get anything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the EXACT same tactics tons of famous people (notably those who "became famous out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become wealthy and famous.

    You probably know that you only use 10% of your brain.

    That's because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe that expression has even taken place IN YOUR own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind 7 years ago, while driving an unlicensed, beat-up trash bucket of a vehicle with a suspended driver's license and with $3 on his banking card.

    "I'm very frustrated with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I become successful?"

    You've been a part of those those thoughts, ain't it right?

    Your success story is going to happen. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.
