1960 Antares Parva Serial # C-050366 1960 Antares Parva typewriter, Serial # C-050366 Gerald Ambrose's 1960 Antares Parva typewriter. 2022-05-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1960 Antares Parva Serial # C-050366 I found this machine at a Flea Market with a seller that had with it, an Oliver No. 5 and an Underwood portable. I ended up buying both this machine and the Oliver and find that this Ultra-portable is quite a capable and fun machine to use. The print quality and type action is better than most other comparable machines that I have tried. All it needs, at present, is a fresh ribbon.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
