Wonderful 1956-ish Tower Commander, obtained from Key Snap at the 2nd Chandler Type-In. Basically equivalent to a Smith-Corona Sterling, but with a slightly simplified escapement. Delightfully so. :D
- Second Chandler Type-In Report â€“ Galaxies, Buttons and Commanders, oh my!
- How to type an interrobang on a typewriter, and some reasons why we should. Much easy, so wild!

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 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Tower Commander on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Tower Serial Number page and the Tower Commander By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
