Consul: Typewriter Brand Notes

Zbrojovka Brno, in Brno, Czechoslovakia, began manufacturing typewriters (under license from REMINGTON) in 1932. The name ZETA was adopted for standards, postwar. The name CONSUL was first used in about 1953, and CONSUL portables were introduced about then. [Will Davis, Tilman Elster]

A sticker can often be found on the bottom of these machines that states the manufacture date. "I've managed to pin down a year for a pre-1960 Consul mid-size portable serial number. I have a manufacturing date of 11-1958 for the SN ZP-98292" [Nick Beland]
