Recently Philly Typewriter received a gift in the mail along with a letter from Tom Hanks. Hanks asked them to repair or display it. It is a 1953 East German Rheinmetall Gs typewriter.

Hanks included an autograph. He is into typewriters and has written a book called “Uncommon Type: Some Stories.” There are 17 stories in that book.

He collects typewriters, and sometimes he de-clutters and shares.

Check out Philly Typewriter. They restore and rehabilitate typewriters.
