1956 Tower Chieftain Serial # 443392 1956 Tower Chieftain typewriter, Serial # 443392 Jack B's 1956 Tower Chieftain typewriter. 2018-09-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1956 Tower Chieftain Serial # 443392 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.
