Description: There are 8 different IBM shields shown here. The oldest pictures Stella Pajunas-Garmand from Chicago “…the world’s champion typist.” She typed 216 words per minute on a IBM Electric Typewriter in 1946 in a one minute trial. 5 of the 8 shields shown here picture IBM’s electric typewriters. The Pajunas shield is the most valuable followed by the ones with the pictured typewriters.
