1956 Imperial Good Companion 1 Serial # JR254 1956 Imperial Good Companion 1 typewriter, Serial # JR254 Anyerin Drury's 1956 Imperial Good Companion 1 typewriter. 2019-05-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Anyerin Drury: 1956 Imperial Good Companion 1 Serial # JR254 Didn't have to go far for this one, it popped up around the corner!
Very good condition, with working case (brush included). Just needed a clean and some adjustments. Requires a lot of strength to type with, but it's snappy and smooth. Love the open backed design and the angle of the paper, which along with the fact that it's screwed into the wooden back of the case, really lends itself to lap typing.
Has one dead key, the plus and the asterix, which when typed is actually an umlaut!
Has a lot of weight to it for such a small typer, and I LOVE the muted colours!
