The Aristocrat might look like some leftover bit of army surplus with its olive-green keys and drab greenish-grey crinkle paint, but it performs like a real Aristocrat, earning the name "Nick Charles". I have fitted it with a tripod mount befitting its military look, and now it's a true go-anywhere field typewriter.
Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
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.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Empire Aristocrat on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Empire Serial Number page and the Empire Aristocrat By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
