The Aristocrat might look like some leftover bit of army surplus with its olive-green keys and drab greenish-grey crinkle paint, but it performs like a real Aristocrat, earning the name "Nick Charles". I have fitted it with a tripod mount befitting its military look, and now it's a true go-anywhere field typewriter.
