Thanks for the info. I'm not really a collector but it's too nice a machine to part it out, but i would be willing to sell it.

The serial # is 90142. I'm in Phoenix, AZ. I acquired it at an estate auction. It was inside a box which contained an antique surveyor's transit that I bid on.  Thanks for your help

Thanks for the response. Yeah my first thought after seeing how much they are getting for keys on ebay was to scrap it, but after I started cleaning it up a little and testing its functions I became fascinated by the design and engineering that went into this machine. Quite amazing. Everything still works on it, the springs have good tension. I was even able to type out some faint characters with the old dried up ribbon. Aside from a lot of dust and a few chips, the only thing I could find wrong with it was that the lettering for the 6 key as rotated about 90 degrees.
Anyway I think I'm just going to hang on to it, show the grandkids how texting used to be done. I saw several of the model 5s for sale, but none of the 6s do you know about what year it would have been built?
Thanks again for your info.here's a couple of pics.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55340549/P1020075.JPG

Hello,
I would like to apologize in advance if this is not the proper place for my question. I know very little about vintage typewriters, however I've recently come into possession of a Woodstock Model No. 6 Typewriter that is in exceptionally good working condtion. This is such a remarkable well made machine, I have to believe it has some value, but I haven't been able to find any sold or for sale. So if there's anyone who could help me out with an approximate value or point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
