Hello.. Today I went out Garbage Picking with my good friend.
The Very first item i run into is an old typewriter.. i didnt think much of it at first.. but iv been online for the past 2 hours and cant find Any information about it other then the guy who made them came to toronto to make them a few years.
Have i Found a historical item? This typewriter was found on the front lawn of a 98 year old man's home. 20 minutes after He allowed us hunt around in his garbage, and spotted the case right away. i opened it after the hunt.. i find this...
A Commodore, Toronto Canada, Tower Typewriter With a Serial Number : 224046221 serial is located underneath the typewriter, it looks like as if it was hammerd in 1 number at a type. I received a vintage pouch that seemed to originally come with the typewriter.. from the pouch i pulled out a round ACME case containing a ribbon inside, The bottom of the case ( When you pull OUT the ribbon from the case) it says " Container can be used for pins,clips,trinkets ect.. Bottom half makes Excellent coaster! with a STAMP with "17 " on it. inside.. there was a ribbon inside, and on the black metal part of the ribbon it has 5 Pat. numbers which are.. Can. Pat. 1949 , svenskt pat. pend , Swiss +2b6b39 , uk. pat. 624116 , u.s. pat. 2486473.. if i flip the container upside down its says Machine (43) ROYAL Colour Black inking Burroughs Business Machines Ltd. Supplies Division 35 bertrand ave, p . o box 6 station H toronto 13 , canada. oh and the typewriter light grey and grey.
Its in Excellent Condition, like unbelievable all original!
