1924 Dayton Portable Serial # BN-330 1924 Dayton Portable typewriter, Serial # BN-330 Ted Munk's 1924 Dayton Portable typewriter. 2013-09-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1924 Dayton Portable Serial # BN-330 Dayton, one of perhaps 7 known to still exist. Rough condition. From the collection of Bill Wahl at Mesa Typewriter Exchange. This is the highest serial number known, and all other surviving Daytons are painted in a flat-texture "Battleship Grey" usually with blue pinstriping. This example was probably produced towards the end of the Dayton's production run, and the black paint may have been a cost-cutting measure as Dayton began to have cashflow problems.

I previously reported the serial number as "BX-530" but on revisiting the machine and taking better pictures, I now revise the serial number to "BN-330"

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 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
