Unless Sears had its own numbers, this "Tower Cheiftain" is from 1956. It is actually a Olivetti Lettera 22.
Bought from shopgoodwill.com. Had many issues at arrival, but the only one it has now is caused by missing rubber grommets that hold the body in place.
At first, this machine feels squishy and stiff. Once you get into it, however, it becomes quite enjoyable. Definitely my favorite "laptop" portable.
Came with user manual.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Tower Chieftain on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Tower Serial Number page and the Tower Chieftain By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
