I would like to buy a semi-famous typewriter.

So I want a great classic typewriter. But I'd also like a little MORE than that. I want it to have a history. To have stories. To make it unique. So where can I buy a typewriter owned by someone famous? I'd love a celebrity's typewriter but I'm also open to other ways it could be famous. such as...
owned by a hack writer from the 50's who knocked out MY THREE SONS episodes on it.
from a police station where a notorious criminal was arrested and which might have typed up memos related to it.
A factory mistake with two Z's
I want something original or special about this typewriter. How would I go about looking for it? Because Ebay and Etsy aren't as much help as I'd like here.
