The Typewriter Database 199X Nasco (Hitachi) NX-90 Serial # S872278 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 199X Nasco (Hitachi) NX-90 Serial # S872278 As far as I know NASCO is an acronym for National Advanced Systems Corp and is, or was, a subsidiary of Hitachi, mainly selling computers, computer peripherals, printers and electronic typewriters.

June 5th 2017:

I don't know why I failed to notice this before, but the ribbon cartridge for this typewriter is compatible with a "Towa Executive 77". The "anonymous" instruction guide is also a tell-tale sign that this is a Towa typewriter.
Therefore I believe the marque should be "NASCO (Towa)" - although I'm sorry to see Hitachi go. :)
I also have a thumbnail image (all I can find thus far) of a "Towa Executive II" that strongly resembles (but is not identical to) this NX-90.
