1960 Commodore Unknown Serial # 45270 1960 Commodore Unknown typewriter, Serial # 45270 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1960 Commodore Unknown typewriter. 2014-08-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1960 Commodore Unknown Serial # 45270 Yet another Consul (311) used by Commodore. During the late '50s to early '60s it appears that Commodore was manufacturing its own cases to shroud the Consul models it was assembling in Toronto. Some of these in-house designed cases were aesthetically pleasing, for example this machine cuts a nice form for an ultra-portable, but there were other models - in particular those from the late '50s - that seemed to have been beaten senseless with the ugly stick.
