The Hammond Typewriter company produced numerous machines between 1880 and 1920. Below are some of those machines.

Hammond 1

The Hammond 1 began life in 1880 at the Colt Armory in Hartford, Connecticut. James Bartlett Hammond received patents on the escapement, and hammer system while working at Colt, perfecting his type-writing machine. From there the company opened offices in New York City.

The Hammond 1 is notable because it was the only model to feature a full cabinet around its base.

The 12, because some love the 1, some love the 2, we put them into one machine and called it the 12.
