The Typewriter Database 1970 Konryu Collegiate Serial # 8081742 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1970 Konryu Collegiate Serial # 8081742 Made in Japan by Konryu Corporation and sold by "Western Stamping Corporation". This machine is certainly is terrible to type on, but it seems aimed at the student market. There is no carriage return lever - you manually return the carriage and advance the line using the carriage knob.

This looks like the non-deluxe version of the one shown in 1970 Montgomery Ward Christmas Catalog (see gallery)

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

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.
