Help identifying typewriter - Sears The Achiever with correction

Hi. I just picked up a functional Sears The Achiever today. I'm trying to find information on it but am coming up short. I read that most Sears units are just re-brands of other units such as Brother or Smith-Corona. Anyone know what machine this actually is? Would love to find more info about it.

That's a Brother, though I don't know which JP? model it is. There is extensive discussion of them at 
http://typewriterdatabase.com/brother.10.typewriter-serial-number-database
and
http://munk.org/typecast/?s=Brother

Have Fun!

Yeah, looks like it's a Brother unit. I'll look more into them and see if I can find a close match. Don't know if this will help narrow it down, but the model number is 268.52500 and serial M35365367

​The model number is an internal Sears number and has nothing to do with Brother, but the serial number is definitely a Brother serial number.
