Vintage from the 1950s




This is a vintage typewriter type bar key chain. The type bar has two characters on a type slug that are soldered to a metal bar. These bars come from vintage or antique typewriters that I have salvaged for parts.

These keys come from vintage or antique typewriters and have been cleaned. They are original keys, and may have markings, wear marks, or age-related patinas. Because each type bar sits on a typewriter at a different angle, the type slugs (the pieces with the letters) all sit at slightly different angles.

I come across a lot of typewriters, and when I cannot recondition them or bring them back to life, I take them apart for spare parts. However, the type bars in most machines are sturdy and don't need to be replaced, so I end up with a bunch of pieces I don't need. So, I have dozens and dozens of extra type bars that I decided to make into bookmarks and keychains.

Each typewriter key chain ring is about 3.5" long and about .75" wide at the widest, with a ring of about 1" in wide, but there are significant differences between type bars from different machines.

I have a variety of type bars, so if you want a specific letter or style, please let me know and I'll see if I have that available. I also have keys from a variety of machines, so your type bat bookmark may look different than those in the photos.

Just received my Olympia SM-9 and it is working beautifully. It arrived early and was meticulously packaged—and it looks even better in person than in the pictures! As a first time typewriter owner, I had about a million questions, and Mark very kindly, patiently, and informatively walked me through all the questions I had. If I’m ever in the market for another typewriter, I know where I’m going first! Hugely recommend!
