The Typewriter Database 1935 Imperial The Good Companion Serial # Y 619 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1935 Imperial The Good Companion Serial # Y 619 This thing is sweet and vaguely reminiscent of an early Remington portable but snappier. I traded my Golden Shield Voyager, an uncommon SCM 5 series badge-job, for this machine with Gabe Burbano and I am very glad I did. I can see why people make a fuss about these.
I like the little carry handles on each side, they are actually pretty useful especially because sliding this machine with it's little worn-out rubber feet will scratch any table top.
It looks like it was converted for American use. It was sold in England as we can see from the tag in the case, but the 5 key looks replaced and comes with a dollar sign.
