1956 Tower Collegian Serial # 56-30050 1956 Tower Collegian typewriter, Serial # 56-30050 Andy Dale's 1956 Tower Collegian typewriter. 2021-02-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Andy Dale: 1956 Tower Collegian Serial # 56-30050 There's no Tower branding on this machine but I know from looking at the 1957 Simpson- Sears catalog that the "Collegian" model was sold under the Tower name. I won this in a local auction for a bid of $35. Unfortunately there was no case with it.
