The Typewriter Database 1924 Dayton Portable Serial # BN-330 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1924 Dayton Portable Serial # BN-330 Dayton, one of perhaps 7 known to still exist. Rough condition. From the collection of Bill Wahl at Mesa Typewriter Exchange. This is the highest serial number known, and all other surviving Daytons are painted in a flat-texture "Battleship Grey" usually with blue pinstriping. This example was probably produced towards the end of the Dayton's production run, and the black paint may have been a cost-cutting measure as Dayton began to have cashflow problems.

I previously reported the serial number as "BX-530" but on revisiting the machine and taking better pictures, I now revise the serial number to "BN-330"

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
