The ThirteenStriper lived on ... 

Determining the first use of the Thirteen Striper turned out to be much easier then trying to figure out the end of the line or last use. When the 13 line logo was replaced by the Eightstriper for the 370 family of computers the summer of 1970 one would think that would have been the end of the line for the ThirteenStriper. It was only a start of a new life. It turns out that the Thirteen Striper continued as the logo of choice by for the System 3 and the Selectric II typewriter line. It remained in use to the new millennium!
