The Typewriter Database 1956 Tower Tabulator Serial # Series 5 CT470437 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Crystal Bennett: 1956 Tower Tabulator Serial # Series 5 CT470437 This is a 1956 Sears Tower Tabulator manual typewriter, made by Smith Corona for Sears. I picked it up for $10, and am the 2nd owner. It's a little stained on the backside, but in otherwise perfect operating condition.

The keys are very responsive, and really don't need a lot of effort to strike. While I'm not overly fond of the color, it really is a wonderful machine and tough as nails, as is typical of Smith Corona products. It came with the original case, and has the original key.
