1960 Commodore Educator Serial # 031195143 1960 Commodore Educator typewriter, Serial # 031195143 Ian Brumfield's 1960 Commodore Educator typewriter. 2023-06-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1960 Commodore Educator Serial # 031195143 I was graciously given this typewriter by Mark Petersen at the 8th annual Antique Typewriter Collector's Meeting in Morgantown, WV, USA. This little machine is in dire need of life saving repair work; it has had a tough life.

The body is primarily made of a gray plastic, and it appears to be a unibody design. The areas that have metal body panels have all sustained interesting impact damage that renders the machine unusable. I suspect that for the most part the body panels are what's interfering with the mechanical operation of the typewriter. Made in Canada.
