The Typewriter Database 197X Commodore Unknown Serial # 8221114402 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 197X Commodore Unknown Serial # 8221114402 I didn't intend to collect Commodores, but suddenly I have two. I know Commodore rebranded Consuls, but I couldn't find enough information on this particular machine to determine which model or year it is. It most closely resembles a 2200, though it has a tab key and the other example on here does not. Any help to narrow down the model and year would be appreciated! It's a dandy to type on. The key tops are slightly recessed, which feels great on the fingers, and it has a basket shift. It doesn't really look like much, but it's built for long-distance writing.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
