The World Typewriter was patented by inventor John Becker on October 12, 1886. It was produced by the World Type-Writer Company briefly in Portland, Maine before relocating production to Boston, Massachusetts and then Hartford, Connecticut. I'm on the hunt for a World No.1 with gold embellishments on the cast iron under the paper fingers that was most likely produced in Maine. I'm also hunting a World typewriter that was nickel plated instead of japanned.
