The Typewriter Database 1959 Imperial Good Companion 5 Serial # 5S 069 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick T: 1959 Imperial Good Companion 5 Serial # 5S 069 Elite type
UK physics(?) keyboard

Looks smart in the gunmetal grey of earlier Imperials but with black keys instead of grey/aqua.

The Greek characters seem to indicate this would have been used for physics work.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
