This Japanese Brother 100 vintage typewriter was manufactured in the 1960s for SS Kresge / K-Mart department stores. Originally conceived and manufactured in 1961, this is the first model 100 typewriter design and Brother’s first portable typewriter. This one has a K-Mart badge with the classic “K” logo, and is correctly identified with the number 100. It has fab retro style, with an offbeat, yet happy and cheerful buttery yellow finish coating the all-metal casing. It is a sturdily-built and smoothly-operating unit with a deceptively simple design, and is a consistent and trouble-free portable typewriter. It is small and lightweight, and has a snap-on hard shell cover with carrying handle for safe storage and easy portability. The casing measures 12 inches x 11.25 inches x 3.25 inches.
